[VIDEO] Snow shoes & Scuba tanks in Switzerland

Scuba diving below the ice? This is the challenge I took at Lioson Lake, in Les Mosses, in the Canton of Vaud in Switzerland. We had to climb up to 1850m of altitude in snow shoes to reach the lake and our chalet for the weekend. 3 hours of preparation were necessary before being able to enjoy for no more than 20 min the blue glow below the ice. The water was only 2°C but we kept warm and toasty thanks to our dry suits. Enjoy the video !
