10 Reasons why winter hiking is must-to-do
1. snow flowers : at mountain, the wind is cold enough to make snow frozen on the branch and it’s snow covered white tree and the white tree is so-called snow flowers!
2. crunchy crunchy snow makes beautiful sounds
3. Only in winter time, snow slopes is naturally on descending
! it needs a plastic bag to slide down just 10 minutes instead of walking carefully for 1 hour!
4. all the leaves gone, from the beginning of hiking, it allowes to see beautiful snow covered layers of mountains.
5. town is aching myserable cold wind, hiking in mountain is so warm.

10. Winter is the happiest time ever to overcome the fear of cold!

[♣ How cold in mountain]
feeling cold in seoul,grey city?
While hiking snowy mountain,
if you don’t get sweat,you’d probably invisible man or snowman? haha
Seriously? wear layers of clothings to take off when you get sweat! just make it sure to wear 2 jackets(warmer + wind proof) is better than 1 single thick jacket. whenever you feel warm ,zip open. Whenever you feel cold have extra layer.

[♣ isn’t it slippery?] crampons-detachable spikes will be prepared for everyone! enjoy the nature as it is.
Hiking on the snow-paved trails is much more smooth and good to your knee.It’s all russelled and hardened snow,so it’s much feel comfortable and easy to walk!
Seriously? snow covered concrete in city is killing people. walking on snow on the dirt trails with crampons is not slippery!
