Kimchilandia Chronicles – Chronological recounting of Lonewulf’s great Korean adventure.
============
SNOWBOARDING 101 for LONEWULF, SHORTSTRIDE, and ARIGATO 
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.

PRELIMINARIES

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

INSTRUCTIONALS

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

MASTERING BALANCE

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!

THE PINOY TROOP

(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.

REST

 
Aaaah… muscular fatigue
 

MISCELLANEOUS

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!
YAY!
