Korea Day 4 (Yongpyong Ski Resort + Dragon Peak)

on Feb 27, 2010
After breakfast, all of us went back to our hotel and dress ourselves up for the BIG event... SKIING!!! The day that I've been waiting for have finally arrive... I'm really excited about it...


When we reach the ski site, we are quite shock to see the amount of people there... Really jam pack... After a while only we realise that 'Yongpyong Ski Resort' is hosting a ski and snowboard competition but I'm not sure what competition is that... So we decided to head up to 'Dragon Peak' instead... 'Dragon Peak' is very popular because of the hit drama 'Winter Sonata'... I've heard a lot of good review saying that 'Dragon Peak' is really beautiful... 'Dragon Peak' is not included in our itenary and a few of us decided to buy our own ticket... Both of us included...






All of us waiting for our ticket... We need to buy ticket for the cable car/gondola in order to reach 'Dragon Peak'...


Just look at all the people/skier/snowboarder/competitor!!!


Inside the ski plaza...





That's the cable car that we gonna take... Just look at all the 'Winter Sonata' theme around the cable car...


My darling trying to mimic the lead actress of 'Winter Sonata'...


Just look at all the ski slope... Most of the ski slope is close for competition...



The moment we reach 'Dragon Peak', a huge snow storm awaits all of us!!! You can barely see things 50m in front of you and the wind is really really strong!!! First time experiencing this and I'm really ecstatic!!!





























I'm really glad that we can make it down in one piece... 'Dragon Peak' is really a must if you live in 'Yongpyong Ski Resort' because the view is really breathtaking... I really like it a lot... Besides that, I'm really thankful for having the opportunity to experience snow storm like this...


To be continue...
