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
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.
It is a 3 step chamber with
each room getting progressively colder.
