Muju has seen phenomonal growth since opening in 1990 and is now one of Asia's top destination resorts. Apart from a ludicrous amount of skiing, considering Korea's naturally limited vertical, the resort now encompasses a theme park, Korea's largest tennis complex with no less than 108 courts, a lake for water sports, an Arnold palmer designed 18 hole golf course and country club and many other sporting facilities including horseback and mountain bike riding trails. The huge 742-bedroom Hotel Tirol complex, themed on an Alpine resort, includes a grand ballroom capable of holding 700 people with a five-language simultaneous translation system in place. Muju also boasts the country's longest ski slope and greatest uplift. It hosted the 1997 Universities Winter Games and is located in an area of great historic significance and natural beauty. Temperatures fall below zero between November and April and snow normally falls for up to 120 days. Skiing takes place on two ski areas Mansonbong Peak and the new Solch'onbong Ski range, which opened in 1997. Muju also offers a rich selection of off-slope activities, including a ski jump, the Cinderella Beauty Palace, a cinema park, an artist village covering all forms of art, a Korean cultural theme park and a branch of the Russian Tchaikovsky Music Institution.


The South Korean ski resort of Muju is at an altitude of 750m.

Muju has direct access to 30 marked pistes, served by a total of 16 ski lifts.

The skiing is at relatively low altitude, so snow cover can be variable.


There are a variety of pistes to suit all levels of skier ability, from Beginner to Expert.
