You might think that where you live sucks, but we’re pretty sure that living in North Korea would suck worse. That is, until now! Good ol’ Kim Jong Un was into skiing as a teen and he and his minions are rushing to finish North Korea’s own ski resort.

This is the Masik Pass ski resort, North Korea’s latest megaproject, the product of 10 months of furious labor intended to show that this country, so often derided for its poverty and isolation, is as civilized and culturally advanced as any other.

The actual ski season won’t start until December, but officials plan to open the resort Oct. 10, No word yet on whether they’ll allow snowboarding, which let’s face it, is an actual concern.

    UN sanctions on North Korea has prevented the sale of a ski lift purchased from a Swiss company by North Korea. The construction of a “ski resort” in North Korea may be an attempt by the regime to counter the choice of South Korea as the location for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The ski resort, if completed, would most likely never be used by much of the general population of NK, but reserved for NK star athletes and NK high-ranking party members. Kim Jong Un is reported to be perturbed by the recent set back to the regime’s pet project.
