Alpensia Resort is the chosen home of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Designed by Cuningham Group, Alpensia is situated in two beautiful and adjacent valleys in the Gangwon-do province of Korea. A charming Alps inspired village is the focal point of the entire resort. Nestled in the heart of the larger of the two valleys, the village concentrates shops, restaurants, entertainment, and activity venues as well as many of the resort’s accommodations in a relatively small but positively vibrant area.

At the heart of the village is a retail and entertainment pedestrian promenade. With a grand piazza and magnificent five-star hotel and wellness center at one end of the promenade, and a second piazza, family hotel, waterpark and conference center at the other, this pedestrian zone will be frequented and enjoyed by resort guests. Adjacent to the promenade is a factory outlet shopping street, one of the first of its kind in Korea.
