About Skiing in Gyeonggi-do

Let’s be honest. The ski slopes in Gyeonggi-do are not spectacular for many reasons such as they use mostly fake snow, there are tons of people, the runs are short, and tons of other things that skiing purists will rant about. However, if you love skiing and being outside none of that really matters. You can have fun at any slope because you just love being outside.

The world is a dynamic place and not every country has access to every climate and sometimes it’s great to simply be outside on the slopes and not fixate on if it’s “the best in the whole world.” It doesn’t need to be the best to still be a VERY fun day with friends. Let go of your expectations and go enjoy what skiing is in Gyeonggi-do, Korea without comparing. Take a chance and exist in the moment.

Gyeonggi Ski Reports Perfect for Beginners

Now, although skiing purists might now be happy, beginning skiers will likely have a blast on these slopes. They will have a variety of easy, short runs to practice their skills and not get too worn out. Beginners should absolutely take up skiing while in Korea.

About Korean Ski Season

Depending on the weather, the ski season runs from late November through March. During that time, much of the snow on Gyeonggi-do resorts is man-made. This means it will often be icy and hard due to the combination of manmade now, temps, and the number of people on the slopes.
