Skiers brave Sochi's slopes in bikinis and trunks

A total of 738 riders wearing bright bikinis braved the 8 degrees Celsius (46.4°F) cold for the annual BoogelWoogel Carnival in Sochi's Rosa Khutor resort.

At 1170 meters above sea level, the resort is a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders.

The festival began in 2016 and has been held each year since, except in 2020 when organizers were forced to cancel.
