Saskatchewan is a landlocked province with large distances to moderating bodies of waters. As a result, its climate is extremely continental, rendering severe winters throughout the province. Some one-eighth of Saskatchewan’s surface area is covered by water, including Lake Wollaston and large portions of Lake Athabasca and Reindeer Lake. Lake Manitou doesn’t have any fish at all as it is so salty. This lake is three times saltier than the oceans and it is impossible to sink in it. Lake Manitou is known for its mineral and healing properties.
Curling was named Saskatchewan's official sport in 2001, although many have considered it so for years. Once called the "roaring game" because of the thunderous noise made by corn brooms used to sweep rocks down the ice, curling has a rich history in the province.
