Where would like to snowboarding the most right now? Answer: South Korea

Apparently South Korea is getting rocked by a 'once in a century' storm that makes snowmaggedon look like a dusting:
BBC News - South Korea chaos after 'heaviest' snowfall
WE can only hope some pro's are can get there and put together some footage for us to drool over in next season's shred flicks. This probably doesn't bode well for their half-starved adversaries in north korea.
Post some more links if you can find 'em.

North Korea doesn't have any knowledge of the outside world, they blacklisted anything that isn't North Korean, so it really wouldn't matter to them haha.

looks pretty good, wish i had some cash to go there.
