Cold Sauna -110 Degrees Celsius (-166F)

Vernon, British Columbia Feb 03 2012

Today was interesting. We were filming at the "cold sauna" at Sparkling Hill Resort, a very posh, high end retreat overlooking Lake Okanagan.
 
The chamber is set at -110 degrees Celsius! (-166F) That's colder that the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth! We spent 3 minutes in there wearing bathing suits.
 
It was... refreshing.
 
It is said to have therapeutic uses but we were more interested in the extreme cold aspect of being in there. By contrast, the coldest temperature ever recorded on the planet was at Vostok, Antarctica at -89.4C (-129F)

Getting ready to go inside.

Inside the cold sauna where the temperature is -110C. We wore only a bathing suit, headband, gloves, slippers and a mask. These were to protect our extremities from frostbite and to not freeze our lungs.
