Southeast of Seoul in the Taebaek Mountains, the High1 Ski Resort is considered to offer the best snow conditions in Korea. As the highest Korean ski area, it has consistently good snow and requires less man-made snow than other resorts. The High1 Ski Resort 18 pistes served by 9 lifts spread across three peaks. The more advanced terrain is accessible from the Mountain Hub peak.
The High1 Ski Resort is located about a 4 hour drive from Seoul. Alternately, there is a train from Seoul into Gohan station, but it arrives well after midnight.
If you are planning to head to the ski area from Seoul by bus, most of the ski buses depart from the Jamsil Station. They depart very early in the morning (aka middle of the night). Also, keep in mind up at the resorts that many of the hotels use Korean-style mats on the floors for sleeping. If that’s not your bag, make sure to request a room with a real bed.
Overall, High1 Ski Resort is the 2nd most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 15 snowboarding resorts in Korea.
