Who would have thought a "flat" province would have so many abandoned ski hills?
My third ski hill in the past few years, this was is the least exciting but still has its perks. At one time it could brag about "Saskatchewan's only ski tunnel" - this long abandoned ski hill has been turned into biking trails. The chalet remains boarded up, its history locked inside. The lifts still going up the hill and cables laying on the ground.
I also found an abandoned church on my way home from this hill so I decided to share that as well!

Made the most out of my weekend and continued up to another area that I use to explore but now that I live farther away I haven't been to in a couple years. It was nice to return and with no leaves on the trees it was much easier to find some of these buildings.

Decided to go on a weekend trip to check up on some locations we have not visited in a while. We were very surprised by what we found. A complete ghost town now has people living in it again and fixing up the houses - never thought I would see this happen. We also found some other interesting things along the way and had a chance to do some photography before it got to cold.
