Ski holidays in South Korea

You do not need to hit the road for all the long way to Europe to have a ski holiday: South Korea offers a lot of popular ski locations for tourists around the world. Yes, Korea may not be the first country that will come to your mind as a ski holiday destination but fantastic slopes and hotels to provide you a great winter holiday. Between mid-November and mid-February,  a powdery blanket of snow is laid down on the two dozen or so ski hills that lie within a few hours’ drive of Seoul. Many of these hills are huge, multi-run slopes with world-class facilities. And of course, some have also natural hot springs which makes a winter holiday in Korea like no other.

So where to go for a ski holiday in South Korea?, Asia’s leading hotel booking site, offers some recommendations on fantastic hotels to take advantage of the crisp and popular ski season in South Korea:

"But it’s not only pros that come to South Korea to strap on a pair of skis (or a snowboard!) to try their luck on some epic runs, such as the 6km-long Silk Road Slope at Muju Ski Resort. A full range of facilities at almost every location you choose makes sure that everyone from beginners to intermediates to families with small children can enjoy the full experience of a winter ski vacation. World-class restaurants prepare expansive meals, areas for skating or tobogganing are ready to enjoy, and many resorts offer extras like casinos, movie theaters or live music performances if you want to take some time away from skiing. 
Indeed, the hotels suggested below have long played a big part in helping guests enjoy their ski vacation in Korea. As an example, a previous guest at the Intercontinental Alpensia Pyeongchang Resort said: “The hotel was very clean and the facilities were top notch. The room and bed was so comfortable that my husband wanted to stay an extra day! It is next to Alpensia ski area, but the Yong Pyong ski area is less than 5km away. There is also an indoor water park in the resort complex that families would find a lot of fun, or for couples who want to soak in the hot tubs after skiing all day."

Korea is not the first country which comes in mind as a ski holiday destination.
But they have ski, they have bikini and they have bikini ski festival!  
Agoda recommends the following ski resorts:
1 - Intercontinental Alpensia Pyeongchang Resort
The hotel is surrounded by great ski slopes for beginners and amateurs as well as professionals (the high jump for the 2018 Winter Olympics is nearby).

2 - Phoenix Park Hotel & Condo
This is one of the best places for ski lovers in South Korea. The hotel is right next to Phoenix park ski resort and it offers hotel rooms as well as condo units.

3 - Holiday Inn Resort Alpensia Pyeongchang
This beautiful resort is not only famous with its facilities and big and clean rooms, it is also famous with its delicious food.

4 - High1 Hotel
Although High1 hotel is the farthest hotel from the main ski resort, it is well connected to it by a shuttle bus that runs every 20 mins to casino and resorts and the gondolas run on week end to the peak.
