Kimchilandia Chronicles: DAY 1 (ANNEX) – SNOWBOARDING 101

Kimchilandia Chronicles – Chronological recounting of Lonewulf’s great Korean adventure.
Jisan Forest Ski Resort, Yongin, Gyeonggi, South Korea
10 March 2012
Lonewulf, Shortstride, and Arigato
The Slopes
Lovin’ the cold
To complement a previous entry about our Day 1 in Korea, I am posting these pictures of our snowboarding adventure in Jisan Forest Ski Resort. Please have a journey through the pictures below. By the way, note that it is our first time (ever) to try this sport so be easy on the “fallen” shots. 🙂
Happiness – We’ll definitely come back next winter

Read on.


Choosing the boots and board
Paying for the lift
Walking excitedly to the slopes
Photo first with the melting ice sculpture at the park entrance
sobrang ganda ng Korea lahat ng anggulo kelangan ma-picturean
First time to touch snow – WHEEPEE!!
Us goofing around
First snowball fight – YAY!
Now ready for the lessons


Heading to the least steep slope
Dale: “This is the spot.”
Since it’s getting hot (winter’s about to end) Step 1 is ‘Unload unnecessary garments’.
Gearing up!
First thing you need to learn: How to break (or stay still)
Arigato having one-on-one session with Kuya Gem
Gotta stand up
Arigato learned fast – envious Lonewulf became more competitive


Nice view, Shortstride

Time for the steeper slopes, off to the LIFTS!

Look at Master Dale go


Honestly, I don’t know how this shot happened. Haha
Just like a pro. Go Dale!


(L-R) Kuya Gem, Ida, Xan, Me, Dale, Kuya Arn
JP! Kamsamnida. If not for you, we wouldn’t have this much documentation of the activity.


Aaaah… muscular fatigue


Shortstride having fun fun fun
Rare shot! Go Batch Owtu!
To end this, I’d like to beg everyone, if ever you’re going to South Korea on a winter, go snowboarding! It’s one heck of an experience. Especially those from the tropics, like me!

About lonewulf

I am a self-confessed 'jologs', a country boy who now works in the big city. I studied Applied Math, and am now completing Finance while working as a risk analyst. I feel extremely happy whenever I dance, draw/sketch, and write. I also like to read books, eat (not fruits, or vegetables), sleep, and travel. Update (12/2017) - I have already completed my Finance Masters in Diliman, plus Financial Engineering in Korea. I came back to Manila just last year from the Land of the Morning Calm, and is now currently working as a Risk Manager for a multinational financial institution. I am now updating this information box in the hopes that I will get my groove back into writing. I kinda missed it. And I actually have tons and tons of adventures that I have not logged in here. Hope to catch up to what's happening in my life. Here's to hoping for more adventures, and having enough time and energy to share all of them in this online realm. Cheers!
