Tired of cabin fever?  Get outside and go skiing at Roundtop!

Ski Roundtop offers skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing in the winter season.  With nine lifts, and over seventeen slopes varying from easy to extremely difficult, there is something for everyone, no matter what your ability.  If skiing seems like too much of an adrenaline rush for you, try snow tubing.  If you want to kick it up a notch, Roundtop offers the j-bar terrain park to show off your skills.  If you would feel more comfortable if someone would give you a few pointers, you can always opt for a lesson.

When you need a break from the excitement, have a snack at the cafeteria, or a kahlua hot chocolate at the Fireside Pub and Grill.  Every Wednesday is open mic night from 7 to 9 pm at the Pub.  Forget your gloves or goggles?  You can always visit the ski store.

Save a couple bucks by coming on discount days.  Tuesday is Ladies’ day, Wednesday is Mens’ day, and Thursday is Home School day.  College student, senior, and military discounts are also available.  Take advantage of the advantage card pass and get 40% off every time you visit, or if you’ve fallen in love with skiing, go all out for the season pass.

Winter hours are 9am until 10pm weekdays, and 8am until 10pm on the weekends.  And don’t forget that Roundtop is open for vertical trek and paintball in the summer season.
