Getting the Quest[edit]

To get this quest, you must first speak with Breda, south of Windhelm. She will give you one of 9 quests; you can abandon a quest and speak with her again to get a different one. "The Nords of Lower Yogrim celebrate by traveling to remote places, stripping down to smallclothes, and leaping into the freezing water. You should take the Snow Bear Plunge! It is quite invigorating."

Taking the Plunge[edit]

The first place you must go to is Cub's Tumble, in Windhelm. Use a wayshrine to get there, or walk there; the location is on the docks in the east of Windhelm. Once you are at the location, jump off. If you need the achievement, Snow Bare Plunge, take off all clothing before jumping. Otherwise, you can just wear your armor/clothing. Jump into the marked section of the water. Doing this will inflicit you with the Freezing status effect, slowing you down. This lasts for two minutes, but if you go to the fire, ten seconds of the remaining time will be taken off every second, meaning you will only have to wait 12 seconds. This is worth doing.

The second place you must go to is Horker's Drop. This is on the bridge that leads into Windhelm, so go through the city and go to the bridge. Again, jump off the bridge into the specified area of water, and warm yourself up at the fire.

The final place you must go to is Dead Man's Fall. This is west of Windhelm. There is no use in getting there via a wayshrine, as the location itself is just as close to your current location as any wayshrine. Instead, just walk there or use a mount. Once you are there (the location is at the top of a waterfall), jump down one last time, and again warm yourself up at the fire. Use the nearby wayshrine to return to Breda and claim your reward, and get another quest if you want.
