It seems only yesterday that the lifts stopped turning, we had our last snowboard run and we had packed the snowboards and skis back into storage. Suddenly the hot sticky summers of Seoul had me back into the realization that we are now more than half way to the next snow season and I need some down time with friends in the cool mountainous air. My life has been busy, no time for fun, no time for myself. So I decided that it was time to check out, grab some friends and supporters of Korea Snow and head back to the place of my winter dreams.
