Mike Douglas has the coolest job in Osoyoos. An ice facility operator at the Sun Bowl Arena, he paints a sponsor’s logo on the ice. After it’s painted, another inch and a quarter of ice goes on top. The arena reopens on July 19, providing a cool retreat from the hot summer sun. (Richard McGuire photo)
