Bikini-Wearing Skiers Set New World Record in ... Siberia

New, 2 comments

One of the coldest and most sparsely populated regions on the planet just set a new Guinness World Record for the largest downhill ski in swimsuits. Over 1800 snowboarders and skiers braved the Siberian cold (well, it actually looked pretty sunny) to ski in their one-pieces, teensy-weensy bikinis, and Hawaiian board shorts. Mount Zelyonaya's Sheregresh Resort hosted the frosty beach party, which conquered the previous record of 500 participants set on April 20, 2013. And while there were plenty of beautiful people (and skin!) on display, let's just say the event was more about the bikinis than the skiing.

Here's the video, in all its bikini glory:
