The nation's skiers and coaches crossed the border.... to jointly train with their counterparts up North.
Ji Myung-kil starts us off with the two-day session..... agreed upon as part of a series of events ahead of the Winter Olympics
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 ten North Korean athletes, including short track and figure skaters as well as cross-country and alpine skiers.
Twelve members of the North Korean women's ice hockey team already arrived in the South last week.

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.
