Resort room is neat and well furnished. Ours had a view of the ski slopes which were beautifully lit at night. There was even a fireworks display at the slopes on Valentine's Day's night.
The ski village has convenience stores, restaurants, No-rae-bang, billards room (if you're looking for something to do at night)

1 Minor qualm: needing to pay for Wifi.

This place is great for the skiing and family, just be prepared for the unexpected. The suite is open and comfortable for a family. Heated floor, kitchen with two burner stove, electronic fire place, everything you need to warm up after a day on the slopes.

Right outside the resort are 5 slopes ready for day and night skiing. Plenty of friendly restaurants to meet any families needs.

Bright bath towels with you. We tried three times to Beth bath towels, but only received face and hand towels. The suites allows dogs, so don't be surprised to be woken up early to a barking dog.

Alpensia ski resort is one of the newest ski resort in Korea. The resort is run by the Intercontinental Group and is had three different types of accomodation: top tier - Intercontinental Hotel, mid tier - Holiday Inn Resort and budget - Holiday Inn Suites

Alpensia is 5 minutes from Yongpyong which is where the Winter Olympics will be held. In terms of skiing, Alpensia resort will only be useful for beginners/intermediate snowboarders. Snowboarders that want longer, more challenging runs with nicer scenery will need to go to Yongpyong.

It is quite hard to get to for independent travellers with only 2 buses running from Incheon airport to the resort. If you can't make the connection, be prepared for a long difficult trip out there. That said, if you can get hold of the great Front Desk staff such as Annie Kim, they can help you plan how to get there.

Pros - new resort with reasonable rates if you stay at the Holiday Inn Suites or Holiday Inn Resort

Cons - Poor transport options and meant only for beginner and intermediate snowboarders. The spa at the Holiday Inn Resort was closed for the entire stay we were there so that was quite disappointing

Overall, reviews of this place are favorable, and should be. However, for those "wired" folks traveling as a group, be aware that this location charges for each device connected to the network. Each device also needs a separate account set up through the front desk. Imagine how confusing this can be if you have a group staying in a Suite, all having at least an ipad, iphone, or laptop. Further, if you connect your laptop to the wall plug, you cannot connect the same laptop using wireless without requesting a new account for your room and paying again. At 13000 Won per device per 24 hours, your internet costs can rival your hotel costs. Wifi should be free in this market segment!

After a 3 hour bus ride from Jamsil, Seoul we arrived at the Holiday Inn Alpensia. Check-in process was quick at the visitor centre and we were assigned a room overlooking the ski jump rather than the ski slope. It was an ondol room (underfloor heating) and everything worked properly and was brand new. The only complaint was that bedding was provided for only 2 persons even though we booked for 3 and when we requested for additional pillow and bedding, we were told that there would be extra charges. A negative in my books.

The ski house was a short walk away and it was relatively easy to sort out the ski classes (in English) and rental of all the equipment that was needed. There were a number of restaurants located through the entire resort so finding food was not a problem. Those who are on a budget will appreciate the various GS25 minimarts that supply snacks, instant noodles and simple food stuff that can be prepared in the room kitchenette that comes with an induction cooker (2 plates) and a microwave.

Other than skiing, which is obviously the main draw of the resort, we took a taxi from the resort to a nearby attraction in Odaecheon Stream area for the Pyeongchang Trout Festival. The taxi fare is fixed at W25,000 one way and once there we paid for fishing tickets and bought lines and lures. The river is forzen over and holes are dug at various intervals for a spot of trout fishing. Anything caught can be prepared at a nearby canteen (sashimi, grilled or spicy stew).

Room Tip: Try to get rooms that face the ski slope - that would mean having to book rooms with beds rather tha...
