Hello Everyone,
We have a 5 Day Lunar New Year Long Weekend coming up. Excellent time to be up in the winter wonderland in the mountains of Pyeong Chang (평창) region of Gangwon Province and stay at the famous Yong Pyoung Ski Resort!. And let’s leave Friday night to skip the massive traffic jams. And return Tuesday one day early so we also miss the traffic and also have one last day to relax. Also this time we will focus on eating well. Great Breakfast Menus and Dinner Events make the trip that much more fun!


BUSAN / DAEGU DEPARTURE
If there is enough interest we can add another bus that departs from Busan / Daegu. Please email us to let us know if you or your friends wanna go. wheninkorea@gmail.com


America has the Colorado Rockies and Europe has the Swiss Alps. Korea has Pyeong Chang. Pyeong Chang has ski resorts, ice fishing and snow festivals, snow hiking, and other great winter activities in Korea.

PYEONG CHANG AREA
Pyeong Chang Area (Gangwondo Province) is the stage for Winter Olympics for 2018. The 4 Venues for the Olympics are:
1. Yong Pyong (YP) (용평)
2. Alpensia Ski Resort and Casino (10min ride from YP)
3. Phoenix Park
4. New One Being Built

In addition to some fine skiing and snowboarding facilities at YP we will have day trip excursions to these fantastic places:
Gangneung City Dinner and Local Foreigner Bar Hopping
Seonjaryong Ridge Hiking
Alpensia Resort Casino
East Coast Tour


YONG PYONG SKI RESORT
Yong Pyong (YP) Ski resort is our favorite. It is the best one because it is the biggest and highest elevation and farthest away so least lines with best snow. We have been to all of them and we think this is the best.

In addition to awesome skiing and snowboarding at YP there are many other highlights at YP:
1. Hotel Sauna to relax away the muscle ache
2. Indoor Waterpark with Outdoor Hot Pools that sell beer!
3. Excellent Bunk Bed Hostel
4. Fun Things to Do like Bowling, Pocket Ball Pool, Games and Noraebang in the Tower Plaza
5. Numerous Convenience Stores
6. Korean BBQ restaurant, Burger Place, Pizza and Chicken and Beer Place, Japanese and Chinese Restaurants


DISCOUNT PASS
You can get special WinK discount pass for 30% discount on lift tickets and ski or board rental or ski clothing and facilities. You can pay at the resort for these items with card or cash.
Our group discounts will be as follows:
30% off lift ticket and 30% off rental
50% off Sauna at the Hotel next door
55% off Peak Island Waterpark across the street
Discount for Rental Clothing
These discounts will be good for use on either Saturday or Sunday.

OFF RESORT SKI SHOP DISCOUNT
If you prefer we will have our bus available to go to a ski shop nearby where you can get even a great discount on lift tickets and rentals. Its a little bit less convenient but for greater savings. GOGGLE AND GLOVES
They do not rent gloves nor goggles so it’s best to bring them. It’s ok to wear sunglasses (plastic and not glass) for UV protection.

YP RESORT LODGING
We have reserved what may be the best hostel bunk beds in Korea with private lights and curtain and nice comfy mattresses.
The Ski area is less than 5 minute walk from the hostel and the Hotel Sauna is next door. Peak Island Waterpark is also less than a 5 minute walk.

PEAK ISLAND WATERPARK AT YP
The water park has indoor water slides and awesome outdoor hot pools. A great way to relax away~ If lucky and it snows, you can have snow ball fights while enjoying the nice outdoor hot pools/tubs. They even sell beer so you can be drinking beer while sitting in the hot pool. Also Burger King opened up inside the building!


ALPENSIA SKI RESORT AND CASINO
This resort will host some of the Winter Olympic 2018 events. It is much smaller than YP but new facilities so nice and snazzy looking~ If you would like to go to Alpensia for a day of skiing let us know and we will help coordinate. The ski shop promised to provide pickup (7min ride) service (if 5 or more) and rental and lift ticket discounts for us. For 1 full day of skiing or snowboarding will be 47,500 which includes lift ticket for the day AND ski OR board rental. Add 5,000 won for either top or bottom clothing rental.
In addition to ski resort Alpensia has a casino (foreigners only). So let’s go check it out. ^^

FIRST TIME ASSISTANCE
If you are first time skiing or snowboarding you will need help. A friend is your best bet. If you are lucky a really nice person may volunteer to help a bit. Or you may consider to hire an instructor.
English speaking resort instructors are very expensive. 300K won which can be divided up to 3 people.
If you are experienced at ski or snowboard please let us know if you are willing to help someone. SEONJARYONG RIDGE SNOW HIKING
This is relatively easier hike route that takes you along the ridge with great views. Strap-on spikes called “crampons” is needed. We have about a dozen (not in grea condition) available to be borrowed to the few who can get their hands on them.
If you would like to invest in one the cheapest version is under 10,000 won. The better one’s are around 20,000 won. We can order them for you and then hand them out on the bus so let us know if you would prefer that.
There is 5,000 processing charge (no refunds available) so it would be 25,000 to order this one:
