Visitor Reviews of Roundhill

Anton from Australia writes:

Went to Roundhill not knowing what to expect. I'm advanced snowboarder and I was with my wife, low intermediate, friend, beginner snowboarder and two kids new to skiing.

Everyone loved the place, the terrain is very good for beginner to intermediate with all blues being gentle yet challenging. Good beginner park, some nice jumps. Snow is drier than Queenstown. Facilities are basic but you can park at the base so take your lunch and a couple of chairs for 5 star views at lunchtime.

The nutcracker delivers you to amazing terrain! I lived in Colorado and it reminded me of some of the big Vail bowls. On a powder day it would be fantastic!

Staff wanted to be somewhere else but having worked in resorts I know the feeling. Still they could learn to smile and suck it up.

All in all, Roundhill is great and so good that next year we'll stay at Tekapo for a week rather than go to Queenstown. Keen to check Dobson out too.
