Western ski companies distance themselves from North Korea

In many cases North Korea contacted ski companies directly, only to face rejection

Four Western ski equipment manufacturers have told NK News they had no involvement in the supply of equipment to North Korea's recently built Masikryong ski resort, suggesting third party sellers in China and Russia may have been responsible.

But three of the companies said they were approached by North Korean representatives attempting to purchase the equipment directly, in some cases as far back as in 2012.
