The organizing committee for the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics announced on the 23rd that it will expand the on-site issuance of tickets for the game for the convenience of visitors.

This is in consideration of the situation in which many visitors are unable to participate in the tour due to weather conditions such as rain in Gangneung and heavy snow in Pyeongchang on the 20th, the first day of the game.

In particular, the organizing committee first opened additional on-site ticketing tickets at 20% from the day before to ensure the safety of the audience.

In addition, the promotion will be further strengthened by sending e-mails such as game information and event information to reserved visitors.

On-site ticketing is possible only for ice skating events such as short track, speed skating, curling, ice hockey, and figure skating in Gangneung.

On-site issuance is possible at the ticket sales office for each stadium in Gangneung Olympic Park.

Snow sports (skiing, biathlon, etc.) have opened the Venue for anyone to watch without reservation.

Then, if they entered the stadium again after watching the existing game, they had to repurchase tickets, but those with existing tickets were adjusted to freely re-enter.

Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province Governor Kim Jin-tae is also actively participating in the successful hosting of the 2024 Winter Youth Olympics.

He attended the 58th extraordinary general meeting of the Republic of Korea Council of Governors held in Seoul on the 22nd and asked for active cooperation from the provincial governor, saying, “We are making all-out efforts to achieve the success of the 2024 Winter Youth Olympics, but please help us with two things.”

Governor Kim asked for administrative support, saying, “We prepared a total of 700 equipment in the province for the 40cm heavy snow in Gangneung last weekend, but since heavy snow is expected soon, we ask for city and provincial equipment support in case of more heavy snow.”

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that the daytime temperature would remain around -5 degrees Celsius in most parts of Gangwon-do until the 24th, and that the wind would blow strongly, making the temperature even lower and very cold.

As of 6 a.m., the daily minimum temperature at major points was -23.7 degrees in Imnam (Cheorwon), -20.8 degrees in Sangseo (Hwacheon), -17.9 degrees in Myeonon (Pyeongchang), -17.5 degrees in Anheung (Hengseong), -15.7 degrees in Jeongseon-gun, -10.9 degrees in Bukgangneung, and -20.1 degrees in Pyeongchang.
