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 Sinchon
