    1. Hello Svetlana Padil,
      It depends on how you want to ski. For example, if you want to spend your morning skiing at Vivaldi Park from 10:30am to 3:00pm, the fees for lift will be 58,000 won for adult and 41,000 won for children. If you want to rent the ski & snow board, then the equipment rental is about 26,000 won for adult and 18,000 won for children. So, in total, it will be about 84,000 won for a adult and about 59,000 won for a children.

    1. On the Internet, one should learn to practice the correct etiquette. Asking for information without and sign of politeness nor gratitude is bad etiquette. It will get you no response as such "entitlement" attitude shows a lack of understanding that often the people providing you the information is doing it as a favor and they do deserve at least a "please", "thank you" or "may I ask".

  16. Hi,
    I will be in Seoul during the Seoullal holiday.
    1. I plan to go to Vivaldi Ski resort on Sunday, 29Jan. Will it be very crowded on tht date? Is the the traffic to & from Seoul be heavy?

    2. I read some comments that it's difficult for foreigner to get around the park if going on their own (without tour package/ guide). Is it true?

    3. Another thing, the free shuttle back to Seoul is at 6pm. Is there other public transport from the park that i can get on, besides taxi? In case i want to go back earlier.

    Appreciate some feedback.
    Kind regards.

    1. The sledging park is open from December 14th till March 2nd. So you'll be fine when going on the 23rd. You can find the prices for the sledging here (it's only in Korea, but you can easily translate it with Google) A day pass is approx 16$. https://www.daemyungresort.com/reservation.pkg.ReservationPkg.detail.dp/dmparse.dm?pageIndex=1&sPkgGu=1&sRecommend=&sPkgSid=3919&sPkgClass=&sBizpSid=&sMenuLocation=13&sSaupjangGu=
      To go to the sledging area, you can take the Gondola. This cost around 15$ for a return trip. Which you can buy at the resort itself.
      This link is quite good for information about Vivaldi Park.

      There is only one bus which will depart back to Seoul from Vivaldi Ski Resort. If you want to go back to Seoul earlier, one option is to take train from Baegyang-ri Station of Gyeongchun Line.
