We live in a winter city. Let’s be honest, people come to our town to see how pretty it is and often they come from a country that does not experience cold and are usually in for the shock of their lifetime come January. On the bright side though, you can always buy skates and utilize outdoor rinks that adorn nearly every public school playground in Saskatoon. Who needs a warm, balmy beach when you can put on some skates and 9 layers of winter protection and whip around on some ice. Doesn’t that sound fun?? Well it is. It is also an amazing way to spend a family day that is also friendly on the budget.
