Foreign diplomats and officials with international organizations have visited the newly opened ski resort in Masikryong near Wonsan, Kangwon Province in North Korea, the official Rodong Sinmun daily reported on Thursday.
The paper carried nine photos of the resort, one showing a foreigner renting skis.
While few North Koreans can afford a trip to the ski resort, the resort is a pet project of leader Kim Jong-un, who went to school in Switzerland, and seems determined to attract foreign tourists in a bid to earn hard currency.
