Roundhill

Roundhill is a fantastic family ski field with breathtaking views of Aoraki Mt Cook, the Southern Alps and Lake Tekapo.

Learners and little ones can head to the massive beginners area featuring a platter lift and 2 beginners rope tows for a fun and gentle way to find your feet in the snow.

2 T-Bars give access to loads of super wide, perfectly groomed intermediate trails with lots of natural dips and curves making for fun and interesting skiing and riding.

For the more adventurous, head up the world’s (yes that’s right!) longest and steepest rope tow and see what Australasia’s biggest vertical drop (783m) is all about. Offering super long natural half pipes and chutes this is skiing and riding at its best.

For the freestylers, Central Park has jumps, rollers, rails and boxes for most abilities.

  1. Check out Central Park with the help of a snow instructor specifically able to help you at the Park to master your freestyle tricks, rails and boxes featured
