Night Skiing in South Korea: Safe, Exciting, and Stunning
Have you been skiing when the sun is down? Skiing may seem like an activity that is hard to do during the night when it’s hard to see, but night skiing is actually common in South Korea. Most ski areas in South Korea are open at night, and some ski areas are even open until 4:00 AM! During the weekdays, you can see many people skiing after a hard day at work to release some stress. If you’re interested in finding out more about the beauty of night skiing, keep on reading!
Is skiing at night dangerous?
Night skiing at Korean ski areas is not dangerous at all! The slopes are well-lit with many lights, and there is not a big difference compared to skiing during the day time.
Night ski goggles are a must!
It’s very important to wear ski goggles that are meant for night skiing. Ski goggles that are meant to be worn during the day are too dark and make it too hard to see when the sun is down.
Enjoy the romantic atmosphere ❤️
The multicolor lights on the white slopes create an unforgettable night at the resort. The sparkling view from the ski lifts is something to look forward to!
Lots to see
The ski areas prepare various events for skiers who come to night ski. They often invite famous DJs and artists for concerts, and you can only experience this during the night time. Special holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s have events such as fireworks and torch skiing. How cool!
Fewer skiers on the slopes
Have you ever felt that the slopes were too crowded and the line for the lift was too long? Night skiing might be perfect for you. The ski areas are much less crowded during the night, and you can get right back on the lifts as soon as you get down. Get the most out of your experience by waiting less!
If you don’t have time during the day to get to the ski area, night skiing might work for you. Many ski areas are open until 10:00 PM and some are open even until 4:00 AM.
Great snow quality
After regular daytime skiing closes, the ski areas groom the snow and get things ready for about two hours. You can be the first one on the slope as soon as the lifts open back up for night skiing. Because there are fewer skiers and no sun, the snow quality is kept up for longer.
Common questions and answers
How do I get to the ski areas for night skiing?
There are night shuttles for most ski areas that have night skiing if you don’t have your own vehicle. These shuttle buses usually run from Seoul to the ski area.
Are there places to eat and rest?
Of course! The food courts and cafes are open at night. If you find yourself tired and wanting to sleep at the ski area without already having a hotel booked, you can find cheap accommodation options. Jjimjilbangs (Korean saunas) have showers, saunas, hot tubs, massage tables, and more. Jjimjilbangs are a great way to relax after a long night of skiing. They also have places for you to sleep, so you can take a rest at a great price.
