A world class ski resort you probably haven’t googled before is featured in this 18 minute film. This piece takes us into a vacation resort located behind the curtain. This ski vacation is in North Korea.

The weirdest bit about skiing here is that you kind of forget where you are, just skiing around having fun, and then you’re like, [pauses] we’re in the DPRK! This is pretty out there.”-Sam Smoothy

Shot last February, Sam Smoothy takes a week to ski in North Korea, finding the unexpected. The outdoor/sports film production company, CoLab Creative, out of New Zealand, films a week of vacation skiing in one of the most improbable locations you could dream of.

Masikyrong Ski Resort in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, is definitely not Vail, nor Heavenly Valley, but the accommodations at this resort are on that par. Sam’s highbrow eyebrow surfaces early and often as he and the crew have an interesting and enlightening week to say the least!

  1. I try to ski the weirdiest places all over the world but I would never make such a trip while the ever worst communistic regime reigns there because it is a kind of support of the regime. People are tortured in prisons, sometimes starving to death in the countryside and I should ski there among those loyal with the reigning criminals? By the way, this country has another ski resort with one chait lift. It is called Samjiyon.
