First and foremost, you’ve got the water parks. As far as we are concerned, there is no rule that says that these are just for kids and we encourage you to pack your swimmies and get stuck in. At Alpensia, the water park is call ‘Ocean 700’ and in YongPyong it’s ‘Peak Island’ – you’ll find wave machines, slides, rivers you can float down, etc. It’s tremendous fun and, somehow, uniquely Korean. To feel a little more like a grown-up, they also have some remarkable sauna facilities in these water parks.

In the resorts, they also have Jimjilbang facilities – hot springs. Segregated by sex, you’ll find naked Koreans everywhere and the only rule is that you do exactly as they do. Clothes off, wash in the showers, rinse thoroughly and then relax in the hot pools. Leave your inhibitions behind and relax those aching ski muscles – nothing better!

Because these resorts will host the Olympic Games, it is also worth taking time out to inspect the facilities. Visiting the ski jump, which sits above Alpensia, is a remarkable experience – after looking around the museum of skiing in Korea at the base and marveling at the landing zone, take the train/lift up to the very top, for wonderful views and a cup of coffee in the small café. The view down from the top of the ramp will imbue utter respect for those foolish enough to compete.
