We are experiencing some of the coldest temperatures so far this winter but that didn’t stop some hardy souls from venturing out on Okanagan Lake today.

Penticton Lakeside Resort’s Francis Dellosa said in an email this afternoon, Jan. 15, a few brave people from the hotel decided they wanted to tough out the cold and hop on some paddleboards for “some fun in the water.”

Environment Canada reported a temperature of -14 Celsius with light snow in Penticton at the time.

All we can say is BRRRing it on.
