Our accommodations are literally 3 minutes from the slopes. Optional: Yongpyong has a great indoor water park and spa called Peak Island.

Who: Any ASK Now-ETO clients, friends of theirs, and anyone else that would like to join the family. We are open to all who want to have a great trip in a positive, friendly and communal environment. Note: We have chartered 2 buses, so we will be 90 people. That's a party!
Full Ski Package Individual: 187,000 (165,000 + 22,000 for bunk bed)
Full Snowboard Package Individual: 197,000 (175,000 +22,000 for bunk bed)
For an individual who wants to snowboard and is using the bunk rooms, it is 197,000 won including travel, rental, lift, accommodations, and travel insurance. For someone who wants to ski and get the bunk room, it is 187,000.
We also have separate rooms available for groups of 3 or groups of 7. So, if you have a group and you would like your own Ondol-style room (K-style floor sleeping with mats etc...) then you can reserve one of those rooms, but you must be a group of 3 or a group of 7. The benefit is that you and your friends get your own private room, your own private bathroom/shower as opposed to sharing in the bigger bunk rooms. For the bunk rooms, you get to save about 20,000-25,000.
Price for separate rooms:
3-person Ondol: 140,000 for two nights
7-person Ondol: 280,000 for two nights
(see below for calculator tool to calculate your group's total cost)
Note: If you are reserving one of these rooms, you MUST pay all at once. So, one person should gather all of the money from your group and transfer at one time and the group leader will be in communication with us.
Water Park Ticket: 30,000 won
