Posted on Fri, Feb 02, 2018 @ 05:09 PM

The other weekend I had the opportunity to get out of the city for a day and hit the slopes of one of Korea's many mountains.  Whether you are an avid skier or snowboarder, or just looking to try a new activity, I highly recommend trying this winter sport during your time teaching in Korea.  Going for a day, or even a full weekend, to one of Korea's ski resorts is a great way to stay active, enjoy the outdoors, and be able to experience some of the best views Korea has to offer.  In this blog I will not only write about my personal experience, but I will also give you insights into how to plan a trip, along with providing some information about a three of the mountains you can visit.

Korean athletes did their nation proud as they accumulated 21 medals and placed their nation 8th overall!  This is rather impressive for a small nation, against its larger competitors, China and Japan. Korea dominated in Archery and Taekwondo, winning 5 medals in each, and 4 gold medals in Archery. The whole country was suspended in awe and anticipation as the final rounds of Archery was being televised on the local network, KBS.
