Inside North Koreas first high-end ski resort

North Korea, not known for its winter sports or tourist industry, has opened a new high-end ski resort in the country's eastern mountains.

Jean Lee was one of the first foreigners to use the slopes at the Makik Pass Resort.

"They have poured a lot of money and resources into this resort. What surprised me was how well they had built it, considering that it was only 10 months in construction." she said.

This video is part of her recording of the trip.
