▲Bogwang Phoenix Park Ski Resort, the first ski resort to open this year
Due to the early arrival winter in Korea, some ski resorts in Gangwon-do have already scheduled their opening dates for this year’s ski season.
The recent cold wave advisory issued in the Gangwon-do and Chungcheongbuk-do regions, together with the below zero morning temperatures in Seoul, signal the arrival of winter. As a result, ski resorts in Gangwon-do have announced their early opening dates.
The first ski resort to open this year is Bogwang Phoenix Ski Resort in Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon-do, which opened on November 11 when the first cold wave advisory was released. Yongpyong Resort in Pyeongchang-gun also followed suit and opened on the following day.
Other ski resorts in Gangwon-do are also rushing to prepare for their opening dates. Most of the resorts will be open by the end of November.
