Gangwon: Top Winter Destination in Korea!

Gangwon is the snowiest province in Korea with an average of 250cm of snow annually from November to March. The average temperature is about -4.8 deg C, making it an ideal skiing condition. Gangwon has 8 large-scale recreational ski resorts that are popular for skiing, snowboarding and other unique winter events. They are: Alpensia Ski Resort, Elysian Gangchon, Hansol Oak Valley, Welli Hilli Park, Daemyung Vivaldi Park, Bokwang Phoenix Park, Yongpyong Resort and High 1 Resort.

Alpensia Ski Resort is an entertainment destination located at 700m above sea level, which is optimum for the human health and biorhythm. Designed by Cunningham Group, which had previous involvement in the development of famous theme parks like Warner Bros Movie World and Universal Studios, Alpensia offers endless fascinating world-class facilities that will serve the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Welli Hilli Park and Yongpyong Resort are 2 ski resorts which have attained certifications by the International Ski Federation. The slopes at Welli Hilli Park were designed by Paul Matthews of Canada’s ECOSIGN, one of world’s well-known ski slope designers. Yongpyong Resort on the other hand has 27 slopes, including the Rainbow Slopes, Terrain Park and Korea’s widest slope at 180m-wide – a pride of the region.

Elysian Gangchon is only 40 minutes from Seoul by train and is a good ground for beginners, intermediate and expert skiiers; while Hansol Oak Valley has 9 themed slopes with express lifts and world-class half pipe courses, designed by world-renowned Snow Engineering from the United States.

Daemyung Vivaldi Park is a leisure water theme park with good accessibility from Seoul. The resort hosts winter events like the Viva K-Food Festival, a combination of ski training and Korean food experience. High 1 Resort is relatively young amongst the 8 resorts, however it has amazing facilities with a large complex of accommodation, theme park, ski and even casino. The “Go! Go! Ski” programme is hosted here.

Last but not least, Bokwang Phoenix Park presents an au naturale valley slope, standing at 1,050m tall atop Mt Taegi and is the best ski resort in Korea. It has 12 world-class slopes, 8 ski chairlifts, 6 sun kid lifts and a modern gondola made by Doppelmire. Notwithstanding, its 21 courses has unique designs overlooking a 500m-wide panoramic ski base which guarantee dynamic and exciting ski speed.
