Korea is well known for having great ski resorts in the Gangwondo area.

♣ For beginners: Instructions for snowboarding/skiing
Easy as easy to start to learn how to ride bicycles!
Learning how to ride a board (or to ski) is similar to learning how to ride a bicycle! If you believe that you are going to stand up and ride down that slope, you can do it! One of the most important and crucial things about learning how to ski/snowboard for the first time is, you shouldn’t be afraid of falling down. It’s all about the learning process. On the plus side, unlike riding a bike, you’re falling down on fluffy snow!
Once you get the swing of things, you’ll be a professional flying down the hills in no time!
Beginner Skiing Lesson #1-1 - Getting Started and Equipment
-will be prepared by the rental shop
-you've already provided your height and foot size, so there will be gear already arranged for the beginners (they will also do a fitting with you to make sure things fit properly!)
-We will choose a fitting slope for the beginners. This means, you have time to practice all together and watch out for each other.
-The best thing is to try and try! FIGHTING~!
- Instructiors and some other experienced members will be around to instruct, guide and help you for 1-2 hours.
-when you finally feel comfortable to do things on your own, you can go check out other slopes!
♣ SAFETY : J-turn slide for Snowboard, S-line for the Ski. going straight is the main reason to crush to others and the accident.
Ski/SB and soccer is the sports that get the most injury among all the sports.maybe except some more in extreme sports.
❂ prepare snacks (I suggest for you to keep some snacks in pockets when you are on the slope for the long ride of lift)
❂ use a SMALL BACKPACK to bring some clothes to change into later (could also be cushion for when you fall)
❂ buy cheap pants: since there is plenty of time before the actual trip, I encourage you to start looking to buy some warm clothing. This includes; windproof pants(and jacket), fleece/wool sweaters etc. You can find some cheap clothing ON gmarket.co.kr or even some underground subway shops. Once you become more experienced, you may want to invest in some expensive, higher quality items.
