It’s winter again – it’s cold outside, and the skies have turned dark and gray. Most mornings, you won’t even want to leave your cosy bed.

That all changes, however, when you’re heading out to enjoy some winter sports. Here, we look at some old photographs of people ice skating, skiing and sledding – we hope they’ll inspire you to put on your cosiest coat and brave the cold!
