We are some of the first non-North Koreans to ever go skiing in North Korea, AUA!
Thanks guys, we've had a great time! Thanks for all your comments - we appreciate the different perspectives and question. We're off to lunch, but we'll keep an eye on this thread and will update our responses for anything interesting.
You may have briefly read about our trip in the news after our pro snowboarders pulled out:
But, we the organisers, went ahead with the trip regardless!
Here's the original itinerary: http://uritours.com/tours/snowboard-with-terje-danimals-mike-rav-in-north-korea
This weekend we flew from Beijing to Pyongyang. From there we travelled from the capital city to the Masik Pass - home to North Korea’s first and only ski resort.
We are in North Korea right now and eager to answer your questions about the trip!
It's about 10pm in the DPRK right now. Ask us about the people, places and sights. Now is your chance to get a more in-depth understanding of why we are undertaking this trip and what we hope to achieve with it. We look forward to your questions!
UPDATE: We have intermittent power outages, so we might be a bit slow with some replies. Hang in there reddit and we will try our best to answer all your questions!
UPDATE#2: Thank-you so much for all your questions reddit. We've had a blast. It's getting late here and we have another action-packed day on the slopes tomorrow. We will be back tomorrow with more members of our team for more questions at 23:00pm est / 12:30am Pyongyang time. Basically if you want more in-depth information, photos of our trip and discussion - stay tuned!
UPDATE #3: The team is online again, back from our morning runs. It's 12:30pm here in DPRK (Masik Pass ski resort) and we'll answer questions for about an hour. Send them in! Thanks everyone.
Here’s our all-important proof:
