About

Roundhill is a family ski area with something for everyone!

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

Our 2 T-Bars give access to 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, chutes this is skiing and riding at its best.

We have a licensed cafe an International Snowsports School for all ages and a huge range of rental equipment.
