Western Region

Rolling hills and towering dunes

The retreat of the last glacier shaped the western region’s landscape. Rolling hills reach high above the prairie -- visit Turtle Mountain Provincial Park to admire the views. The towering sand dunes known as the Spirit Sands at Spruce Woods Provincial Park are a rare sight surrounded by forests and fields. Discover the remarkable features of the parks in this region.

Manitoba's Western Region is found on Treaty 1 and 2 Territory.

Explore Manitoba

In almost every region of the province you can find hills that offer downhill skiing, snowboarding, and a few fun extras for non-skiers.

For those looking to work on their moves rather than speed, choose a destination with a terrain park or half pipe. Rentals and lessons make it easy to try downhill skiing or snowboarding, and many destinations offer accommodation options either on site or next-door.


There are over 100 cross-country ski trails in Manitoba, many groomed by volunteers who just love the sport. And who can blame them? Manitoba’s landscape sparkles in the winter thanks to a flattering blanket of white snow just waiting for skiers, beginner and expert alike.
