    Hi. What are the XC ski options in South Korea like? That country hosted the winter Olympics which is a good sign for the XC skiing aspect of things. Has anyone done any Nordic skiing in South Korea?
    South Korea seems to be doing OK with the plague, so far , unlike ski options in the USA .

    I quick www search has led to these things becoming clearer.
    Off Piste skiing is not allowed in South Korea.
    In the Mountains the food is often consisting of meat , meat , meat , rice, veg. and meat.

    I am going back to looking at Japan .

    You are showing a distinct lack commitment to the skiing there @Mister Tee on XC Skis and allowing yourself to be distracted by some insignificant food issues.

    This skier skis on his stomach like the way troops march on their stomachs. Well they use their feet to march with unless they have to crawl through a commando crawling course , just like the 'foot track' from Rocky Valley Creek up to the Spion Kopje Fire Trail . These enquiries about skiing abroad are a harmless diversion from being stuck in lockdown. The possibility of visiting anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere to ski will not arise until early 2022 IMHO.

    So Far Japan looks the most enticing.
