In a move to increase visitors by 2020, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, has invited three of the worldâs leading snowboarders to tour his countryâs new Masikryong ski resort in January.
Terje Haakonsen, Dan Liedahlâknown as âDanimalsââand Mike Ravelson will visit the resort at the summit of the 4,460-foot Taehwa Peak near Wonson, a port city on North Koreaâs east coast, according to a press release from Uri Tours, a New York-based company that describes itself as âfacilitating travel to North Korea.â
The tour is also open to members of the public, with a single ticket (for seven nights and eight days) between January 9 and 16 costing $2,900.
âThis is your chance to be riding the slopes with 3 professional snowboarders in Masik Pass [the resortâs other name] , North Korea: Terje Haakonsen , Dan âDanimalsâ Liedahl and âMike Ravâ Ravelson.
Yes, ya heard it! Tear it up with your favorite riders, get some tips, see some stunts, and mix it up with locals all against the backdrop of North Korea, an adventure in itself,â reads the Uri Tours press release.

Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Can they also visit the concentration camps the world is ignoring?
The state furnished girl tour guides will show them the “action” available in the “mix it up with the locals” in North Korea.
And everyone of these idiots will come back with glowing reports about how great NK is and how well they treat their citizens.
One tripadvisor review guesses that the snow is likely “made with tears”. Others mention terrible food, hour-long lift rides with piped-in PRK anthems, and boring terrain.
I’m stunned these guys would even bother, considering the obvious bad outcomes - from well-deserved bad PR, to the possibility of being detained.
Let me guess. There’s an open pit full of vipers if they miss the turn?
“Iâm stunned these guys would even bother, considering the obvious bad outcomes - from well-deserved bad PR,”
No kidding. These 3 stooges most probably aren’t that bright either. I’m thinking street cred:
“Dudes, we just partied with Kim something in this rad place of his. Totally stoked ah did a 360 sidewinder while these other dudes downstairs were in chains..”
It will be a happy kimchee exchange.
It’ll make for a good story if they survive the trip.
Wouldn’t miss it for the world. Hope my bud Dennis Rodman shows!!
Snowboarding is for people too stupid to learn to ski the correct way.
Let’s not forget that it was George W. Bush who signed off on REMOVING North Korea from the State Department list of rogue terrorism supporting states in late 2008.
It’s freepers like you with long memories that screw up the ol’ memory hole.
Hah! Moving targets are a lot more fun with the anti-aircraft gun.
“Dude...are they SHOOTING at us?”
I hope she takes lots of pictures.
With the lack of ‘light pollution’, he should be seeking investors for observatories.
