There are people waiting all year round for winter to come. They are skiers who want to glide in beautiful white snow. We are now entering the full-scale Ski / Snowboard season, and then we would like to go to the ski resort sooner or later. For those who are stuck at work or foreign tourist who is the first time in Seoul, we will introduce the ski resorts in near Seoul that you can easily go skiing resort after work on Friday.
Elysian Ski Resort
The Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort, which opened on the 24th of last month(November), has set its goal of the all-season ski resort as a “Daily ski resort to enjoy after work” Accessibility is excellent, so you can go skiing after work (from Seoul area). It is the only ski resort that you can reach it by train among domestic ski resorts in Korea.
In particular, the 2017-18 season is the season for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. The Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort is not an Olympic venue but has made extensive use of transportation facilities and facilities for accessing the ski slopes with bold investment for skiers.

Konjiam Resort, located in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province, has a great advantage in that it takes 40 minutes from Seoul and the first rope gardening and lift ticket online booking in Korea. A customer care service that restricts the number of passengers on the same time zone to less than 7,000 guarantees that skiers will enjoy their leisure time. Standby time was shortened to around 15 minutes and skiers could enjoy skiing without being crowded or dangerous.
Most of all, it is convenient to show the ME-TIME Pass, a time-limited lift that allows skiers to choose the time zone they want at any time during the ski season. It takes customers by the phrase “cheaper when it is cheaper” because you can ride in the desired time zone with a 3-hour US time pass.
