However, one thing that might put you off a trip to High1 Ski Resort is its long distance from Seoul.

A one-way journey between High1 Ski Resort and Seoul takes 3 hours, leading to spending 6 hours on highways for a round trip.

High1 Ski Resort, one of the largest ski resorts in Korea, is often referred to as the best ski resort for avid skiers and snowboarders.

An ample amount of snowfall in the area helps the slopes maintain the snow quality consistently high.  With its naturally puffy snow, the long and wide ski slopes are another merit that makes the ski resort highly known by many ski lovers.

Especially the three slopes that start from the top of Baekunsan Mountain are the highlight of this huge ski resort.

Look down the entire ski resort on top of the peak and slide down the endless slope. You’ll be in awe of the sheer beauty of nature and feel hair-raising thrills at the same time.
