  1. Hi,
    I clicked into “accommodation” for Vivaldi ski resort, the peak season date was indicated as 1-15 Dec and then Jan……. What about 16-31 Dec?

  2. Hi..travelling with family with small children. Which ski resort is the best and convenient for children. With ski sled is preferred.

    1. Hi Zahidah 🙂
      In mid-March, most of the ski resorts will be closed because this month is when the weather gets warmer and spring flowers start to bloom. However, as it is still cold enough to ski in Pyeongchang area, it is recommended to enjoy skiing/snowboarding at Yongpyong Ski Resort (the slopes will be open until March 13th). If you are interested in joining a 1-day tour to Yongpyong Ski Resort, please go ahead and check out the detailed information from this link: https://www.trazy.com/experience/detail/yongpyong-ski-resort-korea-ski-tour-shuttle-bus
