Saskatchewan experiences a lot of winter – which allows us an opportunity to experience a lot of winter sports.  From skiing to hockey, most of us have a few favourite winter activities.
The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan is pleased to share these photographs of Saskatchewanians enjoying winter sports throughout the years.
