Chartered buses take us to snow country for a day or a weekend. We visit some of Bittersweet,
Sprucewoods, Falcon Lake, Hecla Island1, Pinawa, Grand Beach, Pumpkin Creek, Sandilands, Shannondale, Turtle Mountain, Riding Mountain; and out of province ski areas of Duck Mountain in Saskatchewan, or Kenora1, Ontario. In the past we have also organized ski buses to Canmore Alberta and for more than ten years Giants Ridge, Minnesota. A typical day tour begins in Winnipeg at a central meeting place. Once you load your equipment on the bus you can catch some quiet time, or chat with friends, while the bus takes you safely and comfortably to ski country. Once at the ski area, some members try to cover as many kilometres as possible, while others are just happy to ski at a more leisurely pace. After a full day of enjoying the trails, fresh air and camaraderie, there's no need to worry about a long drive home. Just board the bus, put your seat back and savour the wonderful feeling that only comes from a day of fresh air and exercise. Join in on the fun and good times as the snacks make the rounds of the bus.
Member lead day trips offer an opportunity to see some of the smaller and less known ski areas in the Winnipeg area. You can join or offer to lead a small group to a wide range of locations. With your new found ski friends you can explore new ski areas. Have you ever tried a ski at Assiniboine Park, Windsor Park, Harbourview, Kildonan Park, Beaudry Provincial Park or St. Malo Provincial Park? We have also had member lead trips to such places as Burwalde Woods, Camp Morton Provincial Park (Gimli), Lac du Bonnet, Duck Lake (Pine Falls), Teulon and some of the same destinations visited by a ski bus.
