Yearning for a day on the ski slopes while in Korea during winter? Enjoy the nature-friendly design of Phoenix Park Ski Resort, which includes 22 top-notch ski slopes in addition to a snowboard park — all located on Mt Taegi in Pyeongchang, the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Your full-day ski pass to the lifts and gondola includes skis, boots and poles (and ski jacket, pants and gloves if you need them), plus a round-trip ski shuttle bus with hotel pickup and drop-off from Seoul.
Please note: This tour is seasonal and runs yearly between November and March. The date is subject to change.
Located approximately 2 hours from Seoul in Pyeongchang — Korea’s major winter sports region that has been declared the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games — Phoenix Park Ski Resort is famous for its appearance in the popular TV drama Winter Sonata.
After hotel pickup in Seoul, board the shuttle bus to Phoenix Park for a full day of winter fun. Your ski pass includes ski gear, and you’ll be fitted for skis, boots and poles at an on-site ski rental shop before heading to the slopes. You can also get fitted for ski clothing — jacket, pants and gloves — if you require it.
Known for its superb quality snow and well-maintained trails, Phoenix Park boasts 22 valley-type slopes that make use of the natural topography of Mt Taegi, situated 3,445 feet (1,050 meters) above sea level. The environmentally friendly design was created in harmony with the surrounding landscape, and 12 slopes are approved by the International Ski Federation (FIS).
Use your ticket to ride the nine lifts, six conveyor belts and state-of-the-art gondolas around the park. If you’ve brought along your own snowboard, take advantage of features like the half-pipe, table tops, round quarters and rails at the Snowboard Park.
When hunger calls, there are numerous coffee shops, bars and restaurants where you can purchase lunch or take a break with a beverage (own expense).
After your time on the slopes is up, simply hop back on the ski shuttle bus back to Seoul, with drop-off at your hotel.
