    Skied pretty much everything at Sandilands Saturday and it was glorious. Only Grey, Grey Connector, the southern bits of Green, and the northern half of Black have been recently groomed, but the other trails were firm and just as fast. The best skiing may have been across the road on Yellow and Blue, which were just lovely! Wore the rock skis but…[Read more]

    Skied Green trail mid-afternoon on 19th. Pretty good! Track was mostly well defined and clean. Snow was an expected mixed bag, mostly sqwunchy & slow. Biggest “problem” with the track is deer tracks, needles & debris weren’t a big issue here. Lots of snow, no sign of bare spots.

    A big shout out to Reg and rest of the trail grooming crew! We had a Fabulous ski on the Green trail Saturday!!

    • Thanks for posting a late-season report. Based on this, I went to check out Reg’s work!

    My husband skiied Sandilands yesterday and the green, purple, grey and black trails had been been groomed on March 1. They were in perfect condition.

    Sandilands ski day has been postponed to next week Sunday.

    Sandilands ski day has been postponed. Due to poor weather conditions, and driving safety. More updates to follow!

    Ideal conditions… a perfect ski day yesterday. Recommendation: Dont just do the green loop… ski the black trail. Otherworldly beautiful.

    Skiied sandilands twice this weekend. Green, purple, black and grey (including connector) are in the best shape of the season! Tracks are firm and fast. Forest was beautiful with the fresh snow still sitting in the trees.

    Saturday afternoon Sandilands trails were in beautiful shape after yesterday’s grooming, and with enough soft snow to snowplow down those exciting hills. After we skied at Quarry Oaks Golf Course; and it was in pristine shape after also being groomed yesterday. The short loops are an easy, quick ski on relatively flat terrain…perfect for…[Read more]

    sandilands.skiclub@gmail.com has told me that the groomers were out on the trails on Friday afternoon.

  • Elise Watchorn posted an update in the group Group logo of SandilandsSandilands 6 months, 1 week ago

    Skied Green, Black, Purple and Grey loops on Saturday afternoon. All had been groomed well on Friday: snow was quick and tracks were excellent. Minor quibble that the packed snow surrounding tracks was on the soft side, so double poling was less efficient than it could have been. Already a snowmobile had destroyed a short section of Black (maybe…[Read more]

    • We met one of the groomers on the trail and were told that the reason for the soft pole plant area is that Sandilands has not received the amount of snow that Winnipeg has so that when they groomed the trail they had to bring the snow from the sides of the trail into the middle in order to set the tracks. Agreed, wonderful skiing nonetheless.

    Grey, Grey Connector, Yellow and Blue Groomed March 6th. Red and Orange groomed March 8th. Grey has icy sections but is fast and fun. Other trails were damaged by snowmobiles but will hopefully be groomed by weekend.

    We had glorious glide on Green, Grey and Purple today. There is plenty of snow, including some fresh stuff that made for safe downhills. The trails were well skied-in and in fabulous shape except for a flooded low-lying area along the green-purple trail, west of the new warming shack. Always a treat to ski at these beautiful hilly trails!

    Had a great ski at Sandilands today. Did the grey, green and black. Met the groomers who advised the red, orange and purple trails were freshly groomed.

    A Sandilands Ski Club leader told me on Friday evening at 11:00 PM:
    “I just received a caĺl from Reg our groomer. They just finished grooming the Green, Purple, Grey, Grey Connector, Black, and Yellow trails, and they are in excellent condition.”

    • Saturday: Black, Yellow, Grey, Grey Connector, and south Green were indeed in excellent condition. We even met Groomer Reg skiing and thanked him for his work.

    Skied Purple, Green, and Yellow at Sandilands today. ~1cm fresh snow on the trails.

    The recent snow on Purple and Green was well skied-in and these trails were in good condition.

    The yellow trail is in need of grooming. It was somewhat skied in, but not enough to prevent the skis from wandering out regularly. Some of the descents on this trail…[Read more]

    Skied Sandilands yesterday January 21. A little icy in a few places on the main trails green/Black but overall very good conditions. The yellow trail was very icy….did not venture far here….great double polling .

    We received fresh snow this week and it is amazing out there! Green, Grey and Purple were freshly groomed on Friday afternoon. Conditions are very excellent!

  • Kevin Miller posted an update in the group Group logo of SandilandsSandilands 1 year, 6 months ago

    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. There were at least another 25 skiers on the trails.
