  1. how does it works this year with the Covid 19, we would like to go for 7/days in Korea with 3/4 for skiing December/January

    1. Hi Joy,

      Ski resorts will open their facilities but not all the ski-related tours that Trazy used to sell will open this year.
      If you are coming from abroad, you need to quarantine for 2 weeks at a designated facility upon arrival according to the policy.

      We hope this information helps!

      Thank you.

  2. Looking to go during 14 Dec 2023, will the Ski resort be opened? When are the ticket be available for booking or it is fully booked for Dec2023?

    1. same here, looking to book the ski resorts, but seems like most tours from Trazy are “Sold Out”. Will they be available nearer the dates?
