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!
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!
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.”
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]
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.
Apparently, the Green, Grey, Purple, and Black trails at Sandilands are groomed and in good condition … even though the Trail Conditions page at http://www.sandilands.ca/ says that all trails are “closed” (posted last March).
