Round Hill Reviews


Great small family friendly and learner ski field


Pros: Fantastic views especially from the Schnapps Hut, generaly good snow and conditions

Cons: Main T-Bar & learner slope can get very crowded, limited options for more advanced skiiers if the rope tow isn't running

We have been going to Roundhill for years and it's been a fantastic field for the kids (and adults) to learn and improve on.  It's a very easy and picturesque drive from the Tekapo village alongside the lake and up to the ski field.  The regular visitors back their cars up against the slopes, put out deck chairs and even the odd BBQ, making for a very friendly and chilled atmosphere. Having a drink at the von Brown Scnapps Hut with it's view of the Southern Alps and lake Tekapo is pretty special too.   The snow is generally very good and the runs are usually well groomed with snow making on much of the central run (Speedway). Everywhere is accessed by a T-Bar at the base...

Great family field


Pros: Relatively easy access road, family friendly.

Cons: A little out of the way.

It has been a while since I last skied at Round Hill and since then they have added a super long rope tow to access advanced terrain. When I was there I got a little bored but am guessing it is a lot more fun now with the extra terrain. It seemed like a perfect place for families provided the kids can ride a T-bar. It would be pretty hard to get lost here and parents can watch whilst enjoying a drink at the cafe. They have some grooming too so good for beginners and intermediates. It is kind of like a cross between a commercial and classic club field.
