Roundhill Ski Area

Spend the day discovering this ski field above Lake Tekapo, which provides beginner-friendly runs alongside the steepest vertical drop in the country.

Overlooking the beautiful azure stretch of Lake Tekapo in Mackenzie Country, Roundhill Ski Area is an exciting and family-friendly ski field amid breathtaking South Island scenery. From an extensive learners’ area to a freestyle terrain park and Australasia’s biggest vertical drop, this little ski field covers a wide range of skill levels.

Head to the Roundhill Ski Area rental facility and get fitted out with a quality selection of skiing or snowboarding equipment. Learners and children will enjoy the wide open beginners area, where a platter lift and two rope tows make it easy to navigate around the green-graded slopes. The ski area’s two T-bar lifts provide access to a range of intermediate trails, featuring an exciting landscape of natural dips and curves.

Go on an adventurous ride on the world’s steepest rope tow and explore Roundhill’s advanced and expert terrain. Take the plunge on Australasia’s biggest vertical drop and carve down 2,569 feet (783 meters) of sheer powder slopes. Expert skiers and riders traversing this run will find long, natural half-pipes and chutes, as well as a wide backcountry area for off-piste adventures.

Freestyle skiers and boarders can perfect their tricks and aerial jumps on the Roundhill Ski Area terrain park, which has kickers, rails and boxes to suit a variety of skill levels. Work on your technique or access different parts of the mountain with Roundhill’s ski and snowboard lessons.

Take a break at the Roundhill Ski Area café or grab a snack from the ski village’s shops. Relax with a beer or a hot cup of cocoa and take in magnificent views of Mount Cook, Lake Tekapo and the Mackenzie Basin.

Roundhill Ski Area is picturesquely positioned above Lake Tekapo and can be reached in just over half an hour’s drive from the village of Tekapo. The ski season runs between late June and September and the lifts operate daily until the afternoon. Discounted lift passes are offered to children, youths, students and seniors.
