오늘부터 1박2일 마식령 공동 스키 훈련 시작

South Korean skiers and coaches crossed the border.... for a two-day joint training session with their counterparts up North.
The two sides agreed on the session..... as part of a series of events ahead of the Winter Olympics to be held in Pyeongchang.
Ji Myung-kil starts us off.
Some thirty-one skiers from South Korea have traveled to North Korea's Masikryong Ski Resort on Wednesday.
The group of non-Olympic skiers and ski coaches took a chartered flight to the North's Kalma Airport, some 45 minutes away from the resort.

On the first day the skiers got used to the slopes of the Masikryong Ski Resort with some free skiing sessions.
On the second day... the South and North alpine and cross-country skiers will hold joint training sessions including friendly races.
North Korean skiers who will compete in PyeongChang 2018 will also be participating in the training session.

Once the joint training ends on Thursday,... the South Korean delegation will fly back home, accompanied by the North Korean Olympic skiers.
The North Korean athletes are likely to compete in the alpine and cross-country disciplines.
They are expected be sent to the athletes' village in Gangneung after arriving in South Korea.

Prior to the joint event,... South Korea has been in close consultation with the United States.
The Seoul government has stated that the inter-Korean sports and cultural activities won't break the international community's sanctions on the North.
Last September, the Trump administration announced a set of independent sanctions that included banning vessels and aircraft that have visited North Korea within 180 days from entering the U.S.
