Embracing Winter: Ice skiing in Brainerd

We’re not sure what the most impressive element of this video — discovered thanks to a KARE 11 tweet — is: the shorts in December, the shirtless lads, the water skiis on ice, the tricks they do, the fact they’re wearing life jackets, or that they didn’t fall through the ice on a lake in Brainerd. We just know it’s pretty spectacular.

KSTP says the video was taken by Christopher Dens on Sunday.

Winter in Minnesota. You can bear it. Or you can beat it.
