Straight from the Siberian Times comes this little snippet about their celebrations marking the end of the Snow Season with a Swimsuit Skiing Day – Why Not we say!!
The largest bikini snow show was at Sheregesh, which already holds the world record of 1,835 downhill skiers and boarders wearing swimwear. The Kemerevo region resort probably had more participants this year – an estimated 2,000 – but this was not an official record attempt.An end to the ski reason was also marked the same way at Sobolinaya Gora resort in in Irktusk region, close to Lake Baikal. Here hundreds took part but on the Pacific Island of Sakhalin there was a variation on the theme.
