East of Seoul near PyeongChang in the Gangwon Province, the Alpensia Resort has 6 courses served by 3 lifts accessing a maximum vertical drop of 190m. While there really isn’t much nightlife in the area, including nearby PyeongChang, the slopes here are open until 10pm!

The Alpensia Resort is located about 80 miles to the east of Seoul. While it’s normally about a 2.5 hour drive, the heavy traffic on Friday and Sunday afternoons make it a much longer drive (up to 4 hours). There are plans for a high speed train to the 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, Alpensia Resort is the 5th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 15 snowboarding resorts in Korea. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Alpensia Resort including Yongpyong Resort, Bokwang Phoenix Snowpark and Welli Hilli Hyundai Ski Resort.
