VIDEO: Man in speedo skis along slushy Fernie street

It’s been a long, snowy winter across B.C. this year, with some places hitting nearly -50 C, and the Lower Mainland briefly shutting down for much less snow.

One man in Fernie, however, decided to take full advantage of the snow on Saturday with a little ski around town, helped by a friend with a pickup truck.
