I’m an Amateur Radio operator and the Quebec Winter Carnival! was hiring voluntary people to do communications on the special “B” day for many years. B stand for “bougie”, which translate to candle in english. This special day is the most important financing activity for the festival. A hard day where we need to wake up early in the morning and go to sleep late but it’s so fun that in no time it’s already the evening. I did this for over 15 years.

But who has ever heard of the famous Quebec Winter Carnival without having heard of the famous snow bath! Yes, swimsuit in the snow!

On February 2000 I decided to give it a try as you can see those 2 pictures of me in action… those of you who don’t like cold weather should pass! You have been warned! 🙂

So, will you also take up the challenge? I swear you that it’s a must! Of course, if the weather do not drop as low as -30°C…
