Step back in time to the way skiing in New Zealand used to be. Drive your car right up to the base and pull out your picnic chairs for a relaxed day on the mountain. Roundhill enjoys an enviable position with magnificent views of Mt Cook, the Southern Alps and Lake Tekapo making a perfect backdrop for those ski and snowboard selfies. Roundhill is a great destination for learners and those who are a bit rusty. The wide gentle learner's area is ideal for first-timers young and old, while the intermediate runs offer just the right mix of fun and thrills. For the experts in the family, challenge yourself with the world's longest and steepest rope tow, taking you to the top of Australasia's largest vertical drop at a staggering 783m. When you need a break either chill out with a picnic at your car or try the food and beverages from one of the two cafes onsite. For learners or those wishing to progress, there is a dedicated snow sports school and rental equipment can be hired on the mountain.
