Round Hill

Round Hill Ski Area lies in the heart of the Mackenzie Basin overlooking Lake Tekapo and the picturesque Aoraki Mt Cook - New Zealand’s highest mountain. From beginner to expert, Roundhill is the perfect alpine location to make the most of the winter months.

Learners and little ones can head to Roundhill's 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.

The T-Bar at Roundhill gives 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 thats right!) longest and steepest rope tow and see what Australasia's biggest vertical drop (783m) is all about.  Offering super long natural half pipes, chutes and access to a huge back country area this is skiing and snowboarding at its best.

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