Although the slopes at the relatively new High1 Resort are not as exhilarating as those at Pheonix or Yongpyong, High1 is still favorited by ski enthusiasts for two reasons. First, it has the highest altitude (1,345 meters) of all of Korea’s ski resorts, which also means it has plenty of clean, powdery snow. Furthermore, all of the resort’s slopes start from the top of the mountain, so even beginner and intermediate skiers can enjoy longer courses.

As the first ski resort in the country to offer nighttime skiing, Vivaldi Park Ski World has since its opening become a favorite resort for younger skiers. Even the creative names of the slopes – Hip-Hop, Techno, Funky – are targeted toward visitors in their twenties and thirties. Many of Vivaldi’s advanced slopes are uniquely engineered with surprising twists and turns for adrenaline-pumping excitement. Beginners, too, are able to enjoy a variety of slopes and can work their way up from the bunny slopes to the more advanced courses. Don’t miss the nearby Vivaldi Park Ocean World, a spa that is perfect for relaxing after a day on the slopes.
