FYI, we have one of the highest skiing resorts in the world.



Malam Jabba Skiing resort was damaged by TTP and is now being rebuilt.

There are quite a few places for snowboarding.

According to a Press release issued by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, the prime objective of the Dream Program is to fulfill the promise with the international sports world to expand the base of sports by inviting young people from countries where winter sports is not available and providing them with systemic training to winter sports.
