TAEBAEK, South Korea, Jan. 12 (Korea Bizwire) – The 24th Taebaek Snow Festival is set to kick off on Friday at Taebaeksan (Mount Taebaek) National Park. Although the area has seen less snow than usual in recent years, the park is most famous during the snowy season, welcoming half of its annual visitors during the cold winter months.
This year’s festival is themed “Snow, Love, and Delight,” and will showcase some of the finest snow works Korea has to offer until January 22.
Other activities include snow sleds and slides, an igloo café, and of course the majestic beauty of the snow-covered mountains.
“We were concerned that we didn’t have much snow this year,” said an official from the festival’s organizing committee. “But 50,000 (Taebaek) residents did their best to prepare for this year’s festival, and we expect that visitors won’t be disappointed.”
