Snowboarding in Seoul?

This past weekend (Dec. 11-13) 50,000 spectators at Seoul's Gwanghwamum square witnessed Switzerland's Gian-Luca Cavigelli win his first World Cup event. Constructed in the middle of this insanely congested city sat a huge a jumping facility that The Seoul Metropolitan Government said cost a total of W700 million (US1=W1,164) and took over 6,000 steel pipes and 500 tons of ice to create. This was the 1st and only time an Asian country has hosted an event of this type.

It was pretty awesome all around. It's been awhile since I had been to any kind of snowboarding competition and this was a great one to watch.
