During my four day holiday for Lunar New Year, I took an overnight trip to Phoenix Park. Parham and I woke up early and jumped on a bus at 8am to head out to the resort, but unfortunately Ryan didn't make it. He was supposed to come with, but got detained in Seoul the night before. It was a two or three hour bus ride. When we arrived, we hooked up with Erik, Tim, Drew & Justin. We promptly picked up our gear and checked into the hostel. Erik is a season pass holder, so everyone knows him, and we got great deals on rentals. All in all, the trip was only about 90,000won. We spent the entire day drinking and snowboarding. It was pretty fantastic. Unlike last time, I finally got the hang of snowboarding. I still ended up hurting quite a bit when it was a all said and done, but this time I at least got hurt having fun.

Sorry about the poor picture quality; none of us were in a state to take good pictures. Also, there are no photos of the actual snowboarding. If I had taken my camera on the slopes, it would be in a million pieces.
