Alpensia Ski Resort

Snow Sports in Pyeongchang

With just six runs, Alpensia in Baekdusan is a small but well-serviced resort which hosted the 2018 Winter Olympics. Far less crowded than its neighbour, Yongpyong, Alpensia is a fine place for family skiing and beginners, with one long easy slope, several intermediate runs and an advanced run, as well as an alpine coaster. There's also very scenic night skiing.

The resort village at the bottom of the slope has three hotels (guests get a 30% discount on lift tickets), restaurants and a water park, and nearby is a ski-jump stadium, cross-country and biathlon courses, a golf course and a casino. Lessons cost from adult/child ₩80,000/60,000 for a full day (four hours).

There are also several summertime-only hiking trails surrounding the resort.
