It can be difficult for many of us when you live in a climate where it drops below freezing or worse, arctic air masses from the north that send temperatures to -40 degrees. When it’s -40, forget about doing anything outside unless you are truly a hardcore thrill seeker! However when it’s more of a reasonable temperature but still below freezing there are some challenging activities you can do with your friends or alone.
The following activities I have either done or have heard done by thrill seekers like myself. but you wont catch me polar bear skinny-dipping under the ice! That’s just what this woman did, the video was uploaded by Kurt Sorensen. I’m surprised she didn’t get hypothermia swimming 5 and 1/2 minutes in the cold water. It didn’t seem to bother her as she gracefully swims in the water like it was in summer. Then there is what my friends love to do and challenge each other, naked snow angels and naked snowball fights! these are fun to do with friends — especially when you have a nice warm hot tub to run in to when you were cold. If your not use to the cold you can start small by walking barefoot in the snow, shoveling snow, etc. Perhaps the most impressive video I seen was this group a hardcore skiers and snowboarders with their “Valhalla’s naked ski segment”!
Whatever the activities you like to do in summer, just think sometimes they can be just as fun and challenging in winter! Just be smart and not freeze to death. Be smart and have fun!
