CNN selected the Top 10 most mysterious islands in the world, and Ulleungdo was selected there. Ulleungdo is a volcanic island that even Koreans must visit at least once in their lifetime. Ulleungdo, which is called the Galapagos of Korea, is about 150km from the East Sea and 220km away from Pohang, so it is difficult to travel. It was not an island that allowed anyone to easily travel.
Moreover, the powder natural snow of Ulleungdo, which is ranked first as the snowiest area with the most snow in Korea, is also a place that Korean backcountry skiers want to try at least once. However, it was not easy to challenge due to the irregular ship operation in winter. As a cruise ship operates between Pohang and Ulleungdo from November 2021, it is now possible to regularly challenge backcountry ski trips without worrying about ship cancellations.
Because there is so much snow in winter, in the mountains where there is no one else, only me and my backcountry friends can ski walk on the volcanic island and climb Seonginbong to capture the beautiful scenery of Ulleungdo Island surrounded by the East Sea. After a quick, sandwich-like lunch there, it's time to go down in the powder for some fun skiing.
Ulleungdo's representative downhill course uses two courses developed by Team Max Adventure while guiding Koreans/foreigners for many years. The first course is the Nari Basin course and the second course is the Bongrae Falls course. Both courses are suitable for upper-intermediate and upper-intermediate backcountry skiers. As Ulleungdo is a volcanic island, the course itself is steep and difficult. Therefore, we recommend that only backcountry skiers/mountain skiers of upper intermediate and higher backcountry skiing participate.
