This ski field was way too icy. The guy at the front desk was rude and impatient. The blonde haired young man in the hire place is a credit to this establishment.

3 days skiing was awesome. great weather, great snow and loads of fun. Not too crowded which meant no long cues at the lifts. A bit expensive but its the ski fields!

Great bluebird day mid-week so no queues. Lots of intermediate terrain and a very long and steep rope tow to access an area for experienced skiers only. Great base facilities and cafeteria with good value food.

Roundhill Ski Field is a great ski field for the whole family, nice slopes for all age levels, easy access from the top carpark to the slopes, only a 35 minutes drive from Lake Tekapo, and great value for lift passes.

The drive alone is worth it the views are stunning. Small area with everything from beginners ski school and bunny slopes to 783m vertical skiing slope. We saw some para-skiing too which was great. Nice hot chocolate in the cafe.

Hi! You can arrange transport from the Tekapo village by calling 021520705, the cost is $20 pp return. You are best to wear warm layers with waterproof jacket and pants. Beanies, gloves and sunglasses are recommended too.
