    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 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 🙂

      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.

  9. Hi,

    I’ll be in Korea for 6 months from around the 12th of Feb and am wondering what the snow at Yongpyong and High1is usually like from this time until the end of the month? I’m not expecting epic conditions like Japan by any means but am hoping that conditions aren’t similar to the final 2 weeks of the Australian ski season… Are most runs usually still open with a decent snow base (artificial and natural) that’s not just slush?


  10. Hi there! It will be great if you could let me know the closing date for Bears Town Ski Resort and Yangji Pine Ski Resort together with their price package. Thanks in advance.
