, the famous filming site of K-drama "Autumn in My Heart (2000)," is one of Pyeongchang's many ski resorts. As the host venue for PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics' snow board arena, a grand total of 21 ski slopes are certified by the International Ski Federation, and skiers can freely choose their course down the mountain from the peak. Getting to the peak, Montblanc at 1,050m above sea level is easy and comfortable when you take the gondola up! Even if skiing or boarding down from the peak is a bit out of your capabilities, the view of the canyon is something not to be missed.
If snow and ice isn't really your thing, spend your time at Phoenix Park Blue Canyon
. Blue Canyon is more than just a water park. With spa facilities in addition to water slides and swimming pools, this indoor water park, open year round, is fun for the entire family.
