The beautiful Baekdudagen mountain range, often referred to as the spine of Korea, runs the length of the peninsular to the southern peak of Jirisan, located in South Gyoengsang province. And between Seoul and the bustling southern port city of Busan there are a number of established ski resorts easily accessed from either city.

From hot spring towns to a tyrol-style village, the central and southern area of Korea is a feast of mountainous natural beauty, including lake country, highland plains and rivers. The ski resorts offer a range of slopes for all levels, great facilities and are located in or near some of Korea’s most pristine national parks.
