Abandonned Ski Resort near the South Korean Olympics

The 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics opened on February 9th. As South Korea just spent 600 million euros on a brand new winter resort, we need only travel one hour North of the new site to find the previous Alps Resort, brutally abandoned 12 years ago. An eerie place that lets one wonder about the fleeting legacy of the Olympic games.

Here is a selection of large format photograph taken in this site as well as a drone video footage of the resort
