    1. Hello Maggie! We are sorry but our “Private Ski/Snowboard Lesson: Phoenix Park Ski Resort (www.trazy.com/experience/detail/1609)” is unavailable for booking at the moment.

If you are interested, please book via this link: http://www.trazy.com/experience/detail/1526

  1. hi.. is it possible to play ski in autumn? mid nov?
    because I want to enjoy the falling leaves moment and snow at the same time.

    1. Hi Stephannie, the ski slopes in Korea are open in winter season which starts in December. We recommend you to enjoy ski in late-December~February to fully enjoy the activity 🙂

    1. Hi Rene 🙂
      Unfortunately, most of the ski slopes will be closed by early March. If you would like to enjoy ski activities in Korea, please visit again in next winter season, from late December to February!

  2. Can we still ski on April 14, 2019? Ive read that most ski resorts close mid March. Is our only option the indoor ski place? Thanks

    1. Hi joms, the ski slopes will be closed in April due to weather. If you would like to enjoy skiing in Korea, it is recommended you to visit during the winter season (Dec~Feb).

    1. Hi Louella,
      It is expected to be updated by next weekend! Please stay tuned for this year’s ski resort opening dates 🙂

    1. Hi Tiffany! During the mentioned period, most of the ski resorts will be operating so you can choose the ski resort upon what you are looking for. If it’s a family trip with kids, we recommend Vivaldi Park since they have a variety of facilities that are suitable for children. If you are looking for ski resorts that are close to Seoul, Elysian resort will be also a great choice. If you are an advanced skier, Yongpyong or High1 will be good for you 🙂

  3. Do You open 1 day tour or shuttle bus on mid nov, i’ll come to korea between 13-18 Nov, and i want to go to ski resort.
    is there any available tour to ski resort during my trip??

  4. Hi! Any ski resorts will still be open up till first week of April? My family’s trip dates got pushed back and we’re hoping to still be able to ski.

    1. Hi Dayz,
      Most of the ski slopes will be closed by the first week of March due to the weather. If you are planning to visit Korea in April, we would recommend you to check out the cherry blossom/spring flower special tours 🙂

  5. Hi Tiffany,

    I am looking at the webcams and don’t see any snow yet. Are you sure High 1 & Yongpyong can start to ski on 24 Nov? I am deciding which one to book.

    1. Hi Eunice! Please do understand that their opening dates are subject to change since the skiing activity is sensitive to weather and they might need to rearrange their operating schedule according to the weather conditions. At the moment, both of the ski resorts are available for booking.

  6. Planning to go to Yongpyong or Vivaldi Park on 26 Nov 2018. We don’t ski, but might take beginner lessons. What if there is still no snow during that time? Is there anything else to do?

    How do people play with water during winter? eg Vivaldi Ocean World. Isn’t it freezing?

    1. Hi Ritz! Since this year’s winter is warmer than that of last year, ski resorts are readjusting their opening dates. Most of the ski resorts will open around the beginning of December. If you visit the water park during winter time, there will be a facility indoor that you can enjoy inside the water park.

  7. Hi
    Please let me know the opening and closing date during 2018/2019 of Ski Slops as follows
    1. Yongpyong Ski Slop
    2. Phoenix Park
    3. Oak Valley Ski Slop

    Thank you very much

    1. Hi Vorakorn! Majority of ski resorts in Korea start operating from the beginning of December. Please be noted that the exact date is subject to change depending on the weather condition 🙂

  8. Hi! I am currently here in Seoul till 28th Nov 2018 and I will like to take my family to experience snow environment, especially my two boys as this will be their first time playing with snow!

    I tried to book a package via your website on those ski resort that scheduled to open on 24 or 25 nov, but they only allow booking from 1 dec onwards.

    What can I do to go play snow before leaving Korea 28th November? Kindly advise me, thank you!

    1. Dear Daniel, the majority of the ski resorts in Korea starts operating from the beginning of December. If you visit the ski resorts that open before December, the amount of the activities you can enjoy at the ski resorts might be restricted.
