Winter sports to enjoy in Gyeonggi Province: Sledding

Soon, it will be the winter holidays for children.

What’s the most exciting activity for children during the winter holidays? There’s none better than some sledding! ^^

There was a time when a simple snow fight in a snow-covered field while blowing into hands to keep warm, sledding down hills using burlap bags, or sledding across frozen ice was enough to keep children entertained. 

Today, it has become hard to see children sledding until their cheeks turn red from the cold. Nevertheless, sledding ranges that let us glide along the snow and enjoy ourselves until our cheeks are rosy remain popular venues in winter. ^^

With the snowy season beginning, sledding ranges across Gyeonggi Province have begun to open up. Today we will introduce a number of sledding ranges capable of helping children have a fun time out in the snow without having to travel far in Gyeonggi Province. ^^
