iVisa.com Recommends

Glide down the white slopes of the Alpensia and Yongpyong ski resorts. Close to each other, these were the main venues for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. The first one, on Mount Paektu, is small (just six tracks) but is well-maintained and less crowded than neighbouring Yongpyong. It is recommended especially for families and beginners thanks to a long and easy track, several intermediate difficulties, its alpine roller coaster and a picturesque night ski service. The town, located at the foot of the slopes, also has a water park, a golf course and a casino.

But the most popular resort in the country is Yongpyong, offering: 31 slopes, 15 chair lifts and, on clear days, you can see the Sea of ​​Japan. Hoenggye Town serves as a transportation hub between the two stations, offering inexpensive restaurants, nightlife, and basic accommodations. Additionally, snow fans can find more options in the mountains west of Taebaek, such as the modern High 1 station, frequented by Korean celebrities. Located at 1,340 meters of altitude, its 18 slopes are connected by five chair lifts and four cable cars. They have abundant powdery snow and are home to the first Korean ski school for the disabled.
