Talking snooooowwwww !

When is the festival? Where is taebaeksan? What's going on there? Wait, i'm starting to sound like my over-excited dog. If there is real snow at this festival, I'm interested! But I've never heard about it. Please tell me what more you know... so far the title sounds very exciting.

Well, you can find out everything I know about it by checking out the calender http://eslhq.com/forums/calendar.php?

I don't know if there is REAL snow or not...I sure hope there is...
the city is way up North so maybe.

It's really cool to have access to a useful calendar,unlike other calendars on other korean esl pages :

sorry I couldn't answer more of your questions. I'm off to the climbing gym...

Mt. Taebaeksan Snow Festival will be held from January 18, 2003 in Gangwon-do. The festival starts with a fantastic opening ceremony with performances, parade and snow sculpture exhibition. Followed are main events such as the Mt. Taebaeksan climbing competition, mini snow soccer game, snow sledding competition, and dance competition. Among them, the snowman festival and igloo cafe are especially popular. Snow sculptures with lighting effects at night makes the best background for the photos. Also, it will be an interesting experience to drink beer in a mug made of ice in the igloo cafe. ‘Ogung sledding’ is a must-do activity in which a traditional Korean sled is used to glide down a variety of sledding hills. Mt. Taebaeksan is one the ten best mountains in Korea and its spectacular snow covered scenery glittering like a silver kingdom, makes it the best venue for the snow festival.

Location: Mt. Taebaeksan Provincial Park, Taebaek-si, Gangwon-do

Default no seats

well the trains all full, except for standing room, and no thanks to that.

It looks really cool though, hopefully we'll catch a festival pretty soon, I'd love to go up north and see some real snow that ain't front'n some ...like these dismal and dim flakes in daejeon.

see ya
