2018 PyeongChang Olympic Preparation Experience – Class of 2018
January 11 – 13, 2017
DTM Class of 2018 students started an exciting journey by visiting the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, Gangwon province. At the arena, Ms. Yesung Lim from PR Strategy Team of the Organizing Committe explained on how the venue will be used at the Olympic and they also tried ice skate. Then, they headed to PyeongChang, the main location where the Olympic will mainly take place. Luckily they got rare chance to tour the headquarter of Organizing Committee office which is originally available for staffs. Then they arrived at Alpensia Resort where snow events will be held.

The second day brought another new experience for the majority of the students, ski. With all the equipment and the enthusiasm, the students started climbing the hill with the help of the great instructors at the place. The class had so much fun learning ski although many of them fell down several times. It was a day of excitment and enjoyment.
