XXIII Olympic Winter Games Pyeongchang 2018

Pyeongchang, the Alps of Korea

Pyeongchang, elected as the host city of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games after three bids, is well known for its beautiful natural scenery featuring lush forests and clean rivers. Living up to its reputation for record snowfall, Pyeongchang established itself early on as the winter sports capital of Korea. Every year, swarms of winter sports enthusiasts visit Pyeongchang to enjoy the season to the fullest.

“Dream Program”

Despite having to prepare for a successful hosting of the Olympics, Pyeongchang also organizes a special event for young people around the world every year. The “Dream Program” invites youths from snowless nations who have not experienced winter sports, and offers systematic training on skiing, ice skating, and other winter sports. The program is considered a significant contributor to the global expansion of winter sports, with 1,246 participants from 62 countries so far.
