South of Seoul and Daejeon, the Muju Deogyusan Resort has 20 pistes served by 13 lifts. While it is one the largest resort in Korea, it is located in the warm North Jeolla Province which necessitates tons of man-made snow.
The Muju Deogyusan Resort is located about a 3 hour drive from Seoul. Alternately, there is a train to the Yeongdong station where you can catch a shuttle bus during daylight hours up to the ski area.
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, Muju Deogyusan Resort is the 2nd most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 15 snowboarding resorts in Korea.
