Most Popular Ski & Snowboard Resorts in South Korea

Yongpyong Resort

Yongpyong Resort

Opened in 1998, Yongpyong Resort has hosted four FIS Alpine World Cups Games and the 2006 IPC Paralympic WorldCup. 28 trails, 14 lifts, and a variety of terrain make Yongpyong Resort one of the largest ski resorts in South Korea. For beginners, the resort features wider, novice slopes and only a slight decline.

High1 Resort

High1 Resort

As the highest altitude ski resort in South Korea, there’s no wondering how High1 Resort received its name. The resort opened in 2006, so it’s still one of the newer resorts in the area. More than a dozen slopes offer terrain for beginner, intermediate, and expert riders all of which start at the top of the mountain for an extra-long run.

Phoenix Park

Phoenix Park

Considering its close proximity to Seoul, Phoenix Park is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The resort also offers world-class ski and snowboard instruction, so the slopes are often filled with first-time skiers. For snowboarders, Phoenix Park boasts an Olympic-standard half-pipe table top, round quarter, and rails.

Muju Deogyusan Resort

Muju Deogyusan Resort

Muju Deogyusan Resort offers more than a dozen runs and a terrain park, perfect for every skier or snowboarder. Riders will find high drops and incredible views, too. The only downside is the artificial snow, as the area receives a lot of ice and little fluffy powder that may be found at other resorts.

Konjiam Resort

Konjiam Resort

The biggest draw to Konjiam Resort is that the ski area has a limited capacity. So, with shorter wait times and open slopes, Konjiam is the perfect destination for your ski trip to South Korea. The resort does tend to have shorter mountains so the resort does rely heavily on artificial snowmaking.
