It is the most visited ski resort in Korea for seven consecutive years. It’s a world class ski resort which can accommodate 20,000 visitors daily. It has 12 slopes and 10 lifts.
I went there to experience snowboarding or skiing. They are included in my winter bucketlist.
I went there with this lovely couple. We used the free shuttle bus located in front of Lotte Hotel Myeongdong. There are three locations where you can catch the free shuttle bus:
- 7:30 – Hongik University Station Exit 8
- 8:00 – Lotte Hotel Myeongdong
- 8:30 – CALT, Samseong Station
There is a tour guide inside the bus. Upon arriving, you’ll be asked to choose a package. Since my friends know how to snowboard/ski, I chose the package without tutorials.
I chose the 79,000 won package. It includes equipment rental and ski suit rental. The ski suit doesn’t include the ski gloves so I had to buy it for 10,000 won. It was on sale that time.
The experience was fun and painful! I can’t count how many times I fell. I had to endure 3 days body pain. I went to sauna the next day to relax my muscles. I strongly suggest that you put this in the 2nd to the last day of your itinerary.
The shuttle bus leaves at exactly 6:00 so you better be there around 20-30 minutes before the trip to secure a seat.
