Korea Day 3 (Yongpyong Ski Resort)

on Jan 31, 2010
'Yongpyong Ski Resort' is situated at the center of Korea's 'Baekdudaegan Mountains' and is one of the most famous ski resort in Korea... One of the reason that made 'Yongpyong Ski Resort' famous is because of the hit drama 'Winter Sonata'... Some of the scenes were filmed in 'Yongpyong Ski Resort'...

Besides that, 'Yongpyong' is famous among the skiers because of the impressive 28 different ski slopes and 15 ski lifts that cater to all kind of skiers ranging from amateur to professional...


Night scene of 'Yongpyong Ski Resort'... Instead of skiing at night, we opt for snow sleds which are actually meant for small children!!!



Wish I can ride that...

The snow sleds is really fun when going down the slopes... It is really easy to master... The only thing that you need is some body balance and courage or BALLS for the guy!!! The snow sleds can go really really fast and sometimes it's really scary because there are a lot of other skiers around!!! Now comes to the bad part... You need to climb all the way up the hill after all the fun which last for less than 1 minute!!! It is really tiring!!!


Snowing again...




I'm really curious about this machine and my tour guide told me that it is a snow making machine!!!









To be continue...
