Ski holidays in Yongpyong are truly unique - bowing lift attendants and ‘gold’ pistes are among the quirks and, with modern and convenient facilities, it’s surprisingly good for families.

Three hours from Seoul, this Winter Olympic host has seen huge investment. There are easy greens and some lovely long runs on Gold Peak, or the Rainbow Gondola tales you up to the Olympic slopes.

The modern base lodge has a huge waterpark and a vast entertainment complex. Skiing continues until midnight, so you may find yourself still in your ski gear in the early hours. If you’ve got time, you could also hop on a shuttle and visit the official Olympic Village in nearby Alpensia.

Reliant on snow-making, South Korea isn’t a place for off-piste, so we suggest combining Yongpyong with Japan’s epic powder on our Asia Ski Safari.

"Host of the 2018 Winter Olympics, Yongpyong is set to become a household name. Take the opportunity to visit now, while it’s still relatively unknown."
