I went to the dried pollack restaurant with my family last week, which is near with the Yongpyong ski resort. In Korea, there are diverse food which is made with the dried pollack. Also Korean language has dozens of name of the pollack, depends on the way of drying the fish, such as Bugeo( completley dried pollack),Hwangtae(dried as Bugeo, but especially dried in winter with the sun and the cold wind), Kodari(half dried pollack)…etc.

Yongpyong is near with the sea that in this region, there are many places where drying the pollack as you can see in the above picture. Accordingly, dried pollack is the local speciality in this region that many Korean eat the dried pollack when they visit the Yongpyong.

We ordered the set menu with grilled  Hwangtae(Dried pollack) which is composed of grilled Hwangtae, Hyangtae soup and other side dishes.

The Hyangtae soup is made with Hwangtae, beaten egg and tufu. Hwangtae and tufu were a lot in the soup that it was yummy. 🙂 The dish which is in the right side of the picture is the grilled Hwangtae and the taste was a little spicy and sweet.

The price is not that expensive that Set menu with grilled Hwangtae is 12,000KRW(about $12) and the Hwangtae soup with rice is 7,000(about $7). Also, it is possible to wrap the food that I additionally bought the wrapped Hywngtae soup and ate in the next day breakfast.

Tips for Skiing in Yongpyong Ski Resort

IMG_2601

Yongpyong is the biggest ski and snowboard resort in Korea, and 2018 Winter Olymics will be held in Pyeongchang region where the Yongpyong ski resort is. Also, the view is beautiful that Yongpyong ski resort is the most preferred ski resort for me. 🙂 Until now I went to the Yongpyong ski resort more than 15 times, and in this year I visited twice in February.

Today I will introduce about the Yongpyong ski resort and tips for skiing or snowboarding in this resort.

1. Place you should go in the ski resort

There are two ski resorts that one is Yongpyong and the other is Alpensia. Alpensia is the brand new ski slope but it only runs about 6 slopes, meanwhile Yongpyong has 20 slopes that if you like to ski or snowboard in diverse slope, I recommend going to the Yongpyong.

If you took the Gondola in Yongpyong, you can go to the top of the mountain.

In the top of the mountain, there are coffee shop, restaurant that it is good for enjoying the view and for taking a rest. It takes about 20 minutes to arrive there with Gondola and the slope is long that usually takes 10~20minutes to go down with ski or snowboard.

This is the view in the top of the mountain. There were no clouds in the sky that the view was beautiful.

2. When taking the ski lift

The left picture is the Yongpyong ski lift and the right picture is Tahoe ski resort which is in border of California and Nevada. The difference is in the footrest bar. In Korea it is common for having the footrest bar as you can see in the lift.

However, many of the Korean take down the safety bar quickly that after you took the lift first make sure you are in the right position when the safety bar comes down.

Also some of the ski lifts in Yongpyong have the conveyor belt that it is convenient to take a lift. 🙂

3. Ski ticket

Yongpyong ski resort is still using the paper ski ticket that make sure if the ticket ring is locked well.

Before one of my friends lost the ticket during skiing, but it was impossible to reissue the ticket for free. 🙁 What they said is “There will be some of the customers who sell the reissued ticket to other people and we made the ticket to be fully locked if you locked the ticket well. So we can’t reissue the ticket”.

 

 

In my opinion, they should change the ski ticket to the electronic card as the other ski resorts that this will help people not to worry about losing the ski ticket.

Whatever, Yongpyong resort’ snow quality is good that I really enjoyed skiing and snowboarding.
