From the official tourism web site

The Sajo ski Resort in Suanbo offers skiing, snowboarding, and sledding. Opened in 1989, the Sajo Resort is the only domestic hot spring ski resort. Visitors can ski all day long, and then relax in a hot spring at night. The resort has slopes for all levels, ranging from beginning to advanced. There are seven types of slopes and four lifts, as well as 4,000 kinds of snowboard and ski equipment available to rent. Convenient lodging facilities include a 50 room condominium and a 78 room youth hostel. Approximately 1,000 lockers make it easy to store valuables. Ski passes are divided into the following categories: all-day passes (9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.), half-day passes (9:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m.), and night-passes (6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.). Beginners should always play it safe and start with a lesson.

Skiing and snowboarding is popular with the younger crowds, while many families take to the slopes on sleds. The slopes designated for sledding measure 120 meters in length. Speed picks up quickly when going down the slopes, putting youngsters in danger, and so it is recommended for children to ride with an adult. Due to the fact that this ski resort is less crowded than others, visitors don’t need to worry about waiting on long lines. This season’s schedule for Sajo resort is: December 12 ~ March 1.
