Top 20 Winter Challenge 2014 Videos

DH Vancouver Staff Mar 14, 2014 1:34 pm

The ‘Winter Challenge’ has gone completely viral on social media and it involves people recording videos of themselves partaking in an extremely cold, winter activity in an unconventional way.

Most have submerged themselves, including their entire head, under a cold lake or river while others completed snow angels with their bare skin.

Following the completion of the dare, they are then required to challenge other individuals who then have 24 hours to fulfill the Winter Challenge. The entire activity and dare is done for fun.

The most high-profile individual in B.C. to have completed the challenge is Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. He completed the dare with City Councillor Andrea Reimer by swimming the frigid waters of Burrard Inlet. Upon completing the dip, Robertson challenged B.C. Premier Christy Clark to do the same.
