Wintertime in Kansas

Posted by Michael Church (Director of State Archives) on Dec 21, 2022

By Lauren Gray, Head of Reference  


The weather outside may be frightful, but we can still find ways to enjoy the winter season. Over the years, Kansans have learned to embrace our state’s harsh but beautiful winter landscape. In this post, we have curated a small collection of images that show Kansans enjoying cold weather activities.


Ice skating has been a favorite winter activity for hundreds of years. Gliding over crystalline ice while sucking in lungsful of brisk Arctic air is a magical way of experiencing winter at its finest and can be enjoyed by both young and old.














Sledding is another favorite pastime on snowy winter days. With the right sled, you can make any molehill a mountain! What’s even better than sledding? A snow day!



Kansas is home to a great deal of natural beauty, especially in the winter.


Ice has captured this waterfall and holds it frozen like a moment in time.

When you venture outside in the winter, be sure to bundle up tight!



As Andy Williams once crooned, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year,” and we couldn’t agree more.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season!
