Day 180: Seoul - Bearstown Ski Resort - Seoul

Bearstown Ski Resort is one of the nearest ski resort from Seoul. Only one and a half hour drive from Seoul, the resort provides a free daily shuttle bus from Jonggak subway station which is just a short walk from where we stay. Awesome!


Waiting for the shuttle bus in front of Bosingak Belfry.

Bearstown Ski Resort
We reached the resort around 9.30 am and we were definitely not the very first few to arrive. The car park was already full with cars.




Queue to buy ski lift tickets, ski and sled rentals.


The lift for sledding slope.


A long queue at the lift station, it was faster to walk.



A very long sledding runway. Shiok!!





During lunch time, the queue at the ski lift was diminishing so we rode it once.


Open air cable car


My newest winter hat. :)


View of the surroundings.


Frozen stream.

After lunch we went to check out the ski slopes.


Many slopes to choose from.






Snowboarding

We definitely don't know how to ski. Hubby rented the ski equipments to try out skiing and also used them as props for photos. :P





He did try for a couple of hours, but it was pretty scary. He really didn't know how to control or brake.



After playing just for a few hours, we were exhausted. Went back to Seoul with the shuttle bus at 5pm. A day trip should be more than enough if you don't know how to ski.

No need reservation for shuttle bus. Just wait at the pickup point. Only pay for equipment rental.

Hi Irene,

i happen to chance upon your blog (in particular, this post) while i was searching on information for skiing in seoul.

Many thanks for your post, i've decided to go to Bearstown as it seems really fun and nice from the pics and vids.

But i would also like to ask you some questions. Hope you dont mind. :)

1) Per the resort website, it was mentioned to reserve the free shuttle bus tickets. Notice that you have answered previously, reservation is not required. How about the return trip?

2) Do the people over at Bearstown speak simple English? This is for the rental of equipments, so that we could ask relevant questions to them.
(i would like to play the sled too~)

3) Any other advices/things which I need to take note? :p

Thanks very much! :D your help is appreciated!

Warmest regards,
Cin (Singapore)

1. No need to make reservation, but do come early as it could be so packed and you have to wait for the next one. i remembered it runs every hour.

2. Yes, should be no problem. I saw many foreigners as well.

3. Have fun! :)
