This was a great travel milestone of my life to experience snow for the first time in my life. Any Asian kid would always have their own vision of the snow world! It was such a day of awesome experience to try snow boarding for the first time in my life. What made it even memorable was the chance to finally meet my Korean student back in Philippines five years ago.
I really told Michael (my Korean student) that I want to try snow boarding even before I went to South Korea and good enought my wish was granted. Instead of going there via shuttle bus, we used his private car that made it so convenient to reach the ski resort. You can get the rental of snowboard/ ski and shoes provided by the reasort but you can have cjeaper alternative by renting outside of the resort. The rental of clothes and board will cost you around 20,000 won and admission ticket was around 47,500 won. There's a lot of places inside for a budget of 9,000 - 15,000 won will do.
