The Sandilands Ski Club grooms 38K of classic ski trails in the Sandilands Provincial Forest.
The two major parking lots will be cleared regularly. These are located across highway 210 from the Marchand Wayside Park and at the Yellow trailhead on highway 404. The Black trailhead lot will not be cleared.
You can purchase an annual Sandilands Ski Club membership (season trail pass) on the Membership page at sandilands.ca.
If you are not a Sandilands Ski Club member, a $5 day pass (trail fee) must be purchased in Marchand at the General Store on Main Street opposite the Wilderness Gate Lodge.
Non-members (of a CCSAM club) must sign the registry located at the Marchand General Store prior to every outing. Skiers who have not signed in before skiing are considered unauthorized trail users. All skiers acknowledge the risks associated with skiing and assume all risks in their participation
Please enjoy our trails and thank you for your support!
Saturday. 25 members of the Charleswood Ski Club skied all the groomed trails — Green, Grey, Grey Connector, Black, and Purple. All trails are generally in very good condition … some washed out tracks and some tree debris, but it hasn’t snowed for weeks so this isn’t surprising.

Wednesday, -15°, 6 members of Nature Manitoba’s Grey Hares.
The Green, Black, Grey, and Purple trails are indeed in excellent condition. The Grey Connector is also groomed.
We had an great day of skiing in the beautiful forest.

Skiid Sandilands on Thursday. Did 3 laps of the green trail. Quite a bit of debris pretty much throughout. Snow was soft and when it cools off I strongly suspect it will be transformed into ice. Started with Swix VR75 (+3) but that didn’t work for long. Ended up using Swix red klister but with the amount of debris it felt like I had mini snow…[Read more]
