The Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort, with its large variety of ski resorts, is a great destination for skiers of all abilities. The resort is located within a beautiful valley, and skiers can enjoy a wide view of the natural scenery while gliding down the slopes.
Whether you choose to go down the beginner, intermediate, or advanced slopes, everyone will enjoy a run of 1km in length. Intermediate and beginner skiers can reach the mountain peak rest area on the B lift. A separate beginner’s course is also available to be used as a practice course.
Complimentary shuttle buses are available from the Gyeonggi regions to the Gangwon Resort during the winter ski season.
Elysian Gangchon is a deluxe leisure facility that is easily accessible from Seoul. Take the Gyeongchun Railway Line from Sangbong Station to Baegyang-ri (Elysian Gangchon) Station and you’ll find yourself walking through the doors of the resort in roughly an hour.
The ski resort has 6 lifts, snowboarding facilities, and 10 slopes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers. Channel Park (the main snowboarding area) is designed for beginner and intermediate riders. Winter sports enthusiasts who need a little extra help with their techniques can sign up for boarding or skiing lessons before striking out on their own.
One thing that sets this resort apart from others is the relatively open layout of the slopes (all of which are 1km in length). By skiing down the ridges, skiers are treated to a wide-open view of the beautiful scenery. The ski resort is typically open from December to March of each year.
