Backcountry Powder Skiing in Ulleung Island
 
Ulleung Island was introduced as a secret island of South Korea by Lonely Planet.
 
Its 100% sure that Ulleung Island is the most beautiful island in South Korea, but Ulleung Island is more charming to backcountry skiers because of Ulleung Islands snow fall. Ulleung Island is regarded as Koreas Hokkdaido of Japan because Ulleung Island has the most snow fall in South Korea and its about 5m during the winter season.

Ulleung Island in winter is not discovered yet to normal tourists because winter is slow season for tourism in Ulleung Island. However passionate Korean backcountry skiers discovered the island recently and we are trying to bring more passionate backcountry skiers to enjoy backcountry skiing in South Korea.
 
Lets go discover Koreas secret island and enjoy backcountry powder skiing with Teamax Adventure.
