Ep. 3: Excited to Swim Outside on a Snowy Day

Snow Swim

Open Water Swimming in January

Join me as I give in the irresistible urge to swim in the snow! This is Episode 3 of my Vlog: Adventures with Jeff Grant. In today’s episode, I swim on a snowy day in January in the Zürisee (Lake Zurich), in the village where I live near Zurich.

The water temp is 6C /43F, with an air temp of -2C / 28F.

Be careful with your cold water challenges

This goes without saying, but please be super careful with any cold water adventures you’re inspired to take on. I have a lot of experience in this domain and after 20+ years of ultra endurance sports, I know my body very well. That said, I also take steps to mitigate risk, including the gear I use, safety gear I have on hand, informing others, and locating myself in riskier swims near people on shore.

Have a great day!
