Alpensia Ski Resort in Gangwon

Skiing heaven. This is what I would use to describe Alpensia Ski Resort, a popular site for winter activities in Korea. With exciting slopes that cater to visitors with 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, which are perfect to spend the merry holidays. They also have hydro facilities and a mini theme park, which friends and family absolutely enjoy.
