Alpensia Resort is located in Gwangwon-do. This place may be scheduled as the main resort for athletes during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, but slope-wise, it may be more fun to go to Yongpyong, which is a five-minute ride away by bus.
After all, Alpensia may be housing the athletes, but the athletes themselves will be heading to Yongpyong and Phoenix to compete.
However, although the six slopes may not be as impressive for pros, Alpensia can be a haven for beginners and intermediates, who can practice and perfect their skills at this relatively quieter resort, then move on to the bigger and more challenging places nearby.
The resort and the overall ambiance is quite impressive, so it would be best to enjoy before the big names start arriving for the Olympics.
