Hello and welcome to my channel! In this vlog I am with my other YouTube friends Alex Sigrist and Forest Park shredding the slopes at the Vivaldi Park Ski Resort. I was so happy because it was my first time ever to go snowboarding or do any sort of winter outdoor activity! All these years living in Korea I’ve never done an outdoor winter recreational activity ever. Now that I’ve gone, I must say that it has changed my perception of winter for good.
I was a little nervous considering my friends and I decided to go at snowboarding over night. We caught the bus at Yeouido 여의도station at around 9 pm and arrived around 11pm. We then proceeded to snowboard all night till 5 am. It was a definite beating on my body but totally worth it!
This whole time I used to dread the days of when winter was coming. I hated having to put on so many clothes and feeling the coldness all over my body. It was just not for me. As a young boy growing up in Hawaii, the weather is something you don’t think about much because it’s good all year round. When is it a good day to go to the beach? Every day! It’s been almost 5 years for me living abroad in an area with 4 seasons and I still can’t get used to it.
Vivaldi Park is a great place to go when you are just a beginner at snowboarding or skiing. The slopes aren’t too steep and most of the people there are beginners as well. The food was a little expensive but a bowl of hot ramen right after a long day of snowboarding hits the right spot.
I have now found my new winter hobby and I can’t wait to go again next year!
