Out of the 6 days that we skied in YongPyong, it snowed five of those days. Although we enjoyed being rewarded by plentiful white fluffy stuff, was also wanted to emerge from the clouds to see exactly what surrounded us. During the afternoon of day four, the clouds began to lift. And day 5 was brilliantly sunny and sparkly. These photos are from those days, and are our best photos from the trip.
This will be our last report of our Skiing in South Korea series. Perhaps it’s only appropriate that we saved the best for last 🙂
We finally saw the ocean, in the distance on the right.
You can see why there is really no off-piste skiing 🙂
From the top of the gondola you could hike far out on the ridge. Of course, we did that one day.
An obligatory selfie taken on the hike…. with our ski boots on of course.
The views from the ridge were amazing.
On our way back we caught a nice view of the lodge.
Then there was more skiing. The powder’s always sweeter on the other side of the fence 😉
Of course, it was fun to ski through the “little house” too 🙂
More mountain views.
And frosty trees.
In the distance, we could see the town below.
We could also see the top of the neighboring Alpensia and Alpensia ski jump.
And we could look into North Korea.
And a parting view of the impressive lodge at the top of Dragon Peak.
Now, when we watch the 2018 Winter Olympics, we can say, “We’ve been there.” You can go there too! It’s easy! Just let ski-korea.com help!
