As the following this is the progress of the Korea ski tour Korea program.
You are able to see the mountains covered with white snow from the car window when you arrive at the ski resort Korea for your ski tour. Between the mountains you are able to see skiers going down the slopes with the zigzag movement as they move side to side but, when you pay attention you can also see young skiers sliding between adults as they are sliding evenly out from between them. As you are feeling anxious and nervous you are ready to learn something new right? But, you don’t have to feel anxious. At this ski resort Korea our professional ski tour guides will assist you in your needs.
For your necessary needs, we will stop by a ski wear rental shop before you arrive to the Ski resort.
You would want to wear your ski outfit one size bigger than your normal size so you would be able to move more adequately. Also, we would recommend you to wear bright colored clothes for those who want to have their pictures taken while skiing. It tends to make your face to look darker if you wear a dark outfit over the white snow so, it would be best to wear brilliantly bright colors to make you look more like professional skier and face to look brighter in your pictures.
If you are done choosing all your skiwear, gears and accessories then, let’s finally start the ski tour…. We will head toward the ski resort with the ski tour guide. The ski resort is only 5mins from the ski tour rental ship by foot. Don’t hesitate to take out your camera while you are walking and take pictures with your friends and family.
After arrival to the ski resort , next step is to rent your skis or ski board. Before following your ski tour guide to rent the gears measure of each individual feet size. The gears are classified into 3 sections. 1st is the ski plate, which you will need while you are sliding all over the snow. 2nd it is the boots, which plays the part of connecting the plate to your feet. 3rd is the pole, it is used to support for balancing. Carrying all 3 of these gears are not very easy to move around due to it being heavy. But, while following your tour guide, if you stretch both of your arms out, your guide will put all the gears on your arms to help you balance them and carry them out to wear at the end so do not worry.
Store your personal shoes into the locker after put your boots on and then head towards the practice area while carrying your pole and plate. What is funny at that moment is, you would feel like a robot once you are moving forward step by step as you are walking. It would be very uncomfortable if it is your first time wearing the ski boots. The reason is because the boots are very tight on the feet and heavy. But you will adjust to the boots as if you could fly in them once you come to the end of your ski tour.
The reason for enforcing a 10min stretching time to be spent with your ski tour guide is safety of our customers is the most important thing in a Korea ski tour. So please follow the lead of your guide.
Now, we will go into the ski tour training.
In the basic ski tour instruction, you will learn
- How to take on / take off the boots with plate
- How to stand up and down on plates
- How to walk to the front/side/back
- How to fall down / stand up
- How to down the slope
Since it is inconvenience, it could be like a baby learning how to walk at the first time with but, at the end you will find feeling like your ski gears are one part of your body. After basic instruction in this ski tour, you can spend your free time.
Small and short slopes for kids were the place where we did. You can go up to the top of the slope and enjoy ski tour by coming down in the longer but smooth slope by purchasing a 57 dollars life ticket individually, if you are a fast learner. Otherwise you can just learn the posture and basic skill.
Return your ski gears and back to the rental shop where we changed our clothes after enjoying ski tour until afternoon. Before taking a bus to come back to Seoul to end the Korea ski tour, change your ski clothes to your original one at the rental shop. Let’s call it a day!
