The High1 Resort now offers zorbing, an extreme sport where people roll in a large, transparent plastic ball, at its outdoor pool.
The resort in Jeongseon, Gangwon Province, is better known for its modern ski facilities, but is well-equipped for various summer activities that the entire family can enjoy as well.
Zorbing was established in New Zealand and the ball used contains a 1.8-meter orb inside a 2.5-meter one. It is generally performed by rolling down a hill, but High1 offers it as a water sport, similar to a water-walking ball, at its swimming pool.
The outdoor pool is located in front of the resort's Mountain Condominium, some 900 meters above sea level. The refreshing pool also has water slides and an air seesaw to add to the fun.
There are two pools _ a larger one for adults and a smaller one for children _ open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Aug. 31. Admission is 10,000 won for adults and 8,000 won for children. Zorbing is free for guests staying at the High1 Resort or those who have paid for the Cool Rider skiing, available all year thanks to the artificial slope, and cable car passengers.
"The High1 Resort is a perfect place for summer vacation and visitors can relax in cool nature as well as take part in thrilling extreme sports", a High1 Resort spokeswoman said.
The resort also features Turbby Sledding in a flip-proof tube, a kart racing track, and a 2.2-kilometer Alpine Coaster. For animal lovers, there's even a small farm with sheep and geese.
