Well next month you have a chance to make your dream come true by taking part in what must be the most eccentric alternative winter olympics event ever devised — the Naked Sledding World Championship, now being hosted for the fifth time. Given what they are doing — racing down a metre-long iced piste — the dress code is helmets, boots — and underpants.

After a break at the visitors' center, one third of the way to Mount Rainier's peak, two friends and I saddled up our packs laden with skis and boots, preparing for the inevitable question from some tourist from Texas: "Where are you going skiing around here?!

A British woman has started a Facebook craze for people to brave the Arctic weather and pose naked in the snow. Forty-year-old Leanne Myers stripped to her undies to pose for a picture playing guitar in the snow with year-old neighbor Danielle Smith.

An eyewitness filmed them alternately jumping into the air and then getting down on the snow-covered ground to perform press-ups. An impromptu naked aerobics session took place as three men and a woman stripped off in the snow. They braved the cold of the the Russian winter to stage the stunt on a city centre traffic island as shocked motorists drove by.
Tearing off your clothes at the first sign of a snowflake may not be everyone's idea of a laugh, but that's exactly what this lot do to pass the time. And they want you to know about it - hence the resultant acres of chilly flesh are emblazoned across Facebook for all to see.
