Just remember, Canada is not all like this.

IT’S WITH GREAT hesitation that I post this, considering my recent article, How to piss off a Canadian, in which I rail against the popular notion that Canada is this giant mass of snow and ice, where it is perpetually cold. But this is just too beautiful not to.

This is one of the arms of Tagish Lake in the Yukon Territory, in the north of Canada (east of Alaska) called Windy Arm. Gabe Rivest came across it and invited some college buddies to hit the ice for some pick-up hockey.

I wonder how they decided who would fetch the puck when someone missed a pass?

    wow that is just awesome. I’ve never seen a lake or ice like that and I’m Canadian! haha

My father always made backyard skating rinks for me.
Leave it to filmmaker Casey Neistat to make even the dreariest of snow days especially...
Does your ski instructor really have the credibility to diagnose mental illnesses?
The instructor was excited about teaching people how not to crash their snowboards.
If you get naked and jump into the sea, you will be rewarded with untracked lines.
I may never be able to fully enjoy the spoils of a standard ski resort again.
Reviewing these shots gets me fired up to go back for more.
