Alpensia Ski Resort in Gangwon
Skiing heaven. This is what I would use to describe Alpensia Ski Resort 700, a popular site for winter activities in Korea. With exciting slopes that cater to visitors of different skiing and snowboarding abilities — 1 slope for beginners, 1 for intermediate, and 4 for advanced — you can definitely have an enjoyable experience here!
But more than skiing and snowboarding, Alpensia Resort is also considered a hot destination during winter (excuse the oxymoron) since it houses the stunning hotels of Holiday Inn and InterContinental. They also have hydro facilities and a mini theme park, which friends and family absolutely enjoy.
