Snow boarding
« on: November 23, 2010, 09:37:41 AM »
Hi,

I've been looking on the internet at information on Korean Ski resorts and none of the websites seem to want to mention prices for lift passes. Does anybody know if they have week passes or if you have to pay per session etc.

I'm thinking about booking some time off work for a trip in January but don't want to go ahead with it if it's a complete rip off.

the tourism site has a section laying out the main ski resorts, with links to their websites. you'll have to search the individual websites to find prices.

Season passes are stupidly cheap, they pay for themselves in just a week of one day passes.. thats at yong pyong anyway, its 390,000 Won for a season, with some free bus rides.

I usually go to Phoenix Park Resort (http://www.phoenixpark.co.kr/english/default.html). However, I also usually go with Adventure Korea (http://www.adventurekorea.com) because they arrange everything for a weekend trip... So I can't answer exactly on cost, but I really like the park itself!

I know of a nearby sky resort near Seoul. It is about an hour away. I was told that, the lift ticket and bus pass will cost about 50-60,000 won. That is there and back. Of course this is not the greatest ski resort, but it is near Seoul, for a quick day trip. Bus supposidly leaves from Sinchon.

A few of my friends and I have recently bought Ski passes for Muju Resort down in Jeollabuk-do. They cost us 665,000won for the full season. We have our own gear so im not sure if it would cost extra to hire stuff out
