The nude skiers have appeared in the sleepy region of Bayrischzell, Bavaria (Bayern), Germany.
Naked as God created them, they glide through the winter forest, careless and free... But how can they stand the crisp cold without the protection of functional underwear and skiing suit?
The leisure traveler from the North Rhine-Westphalia region explains:
"… as long as you move, you don’t feel cold much."
Few cautionary voices are heard warning of the disintegration of the traditional cross-country culture. But the chairman of the Nude Skiing Union of Ruhpolding believes in good perspectives of Nackathlon:
"There are so many nudists and naturists in Germany. … The naked cross-country skiing is a wonderful opportunity for these people to cultivate in the cold season."
