Phoenix Park is nestled in a valley within the Balwang Mountains, around two to three hours’ drive from Seoul. It’s a popular ski and snowboard resort in Korea, and boasts a whole host of hotels, nightclubs, and restaurants.
The resort features 12 pistes, served by eight lifts. As it often gets incredibly busy at Phoenix Park at the weekends, skiers and riders should expect to queue to get up the mountain. While the terrain here won’t provide much of a challenge for more advanced skiers, the resort itself has all the facilities and entertainment you could wish for from a popular ski resort.
It will take between two to three hours to drive to Phoenix Park from Seoul, but visitors should be aware that the traffic leading up to the area can get very congested, particularly at weekends.
