Roundtop Mountain Resort has been a mainstay in Central Pennsylvania for over 50 years. The reason for their continued success? Turning their traditionally winter-focused ski resort into an all-year-round experience for families. When most think of Roundtop Mountain Resort, skiing down the slopes probably comes to mind. Don't be mistaken, Roundtop certainly offers great options for skiing and snowboarding, but they want you to know that's not all they offer.
Play in the Snow
For those who don't ski or snowboard, snow tubing at Roundtop is a fun activity that will give you and the family some outdoor time without the need for a ski pass.
There are 10 large tubing lanes for ages 5 and older serviced by a covered Magic Carpet lift. The runs are 800' long and have a vertical drop of 80'. Guests must be 42" or taller to tube the main hill. A separate Kiddie Tubing area is designed for the smallest guests 41" or smaller.
If you'd like to try skiing or snowboarding, you shouldn't feel intimidated. Roundtop is a great place to learn and offers small group or private lessons at their Ski & Snowboard School for both adults (ages 13+) and children (ages 3 to 12) at all skill levels. The slopes range from easy to extremely difficult and include a terrain park and a vertical drop of 600' with a top elevation of 1,335'. Lift tickets can be booked online but will be limited during popular holiday periods: Dec. 25 - Jan. 2, Jan. 14-17, and Feb. 18-27.
When you are ready to warm up or need to refuel, Roundtop has several dining options. Quick service options include the Main Lodge Food Court and the Snow Tubing Lodge Food Court.

Even if Mother Nature does not cooperate, Roundtop's state-of-the-art snowmaking system ensures snowy slopes with the best snow conditions in the region.
Soak Up the Sun
When the snow starts to melt, Roundtop doesn't slow down. They ramp up their spring and summer activities and mountain adventures. The warmer weather brings an adventure park, zip line canopy tour, paintball, day and residential camps for kids, and facilitated team-building at the ropes course. Mountain Adventures, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, includes the OGO ball (Roundtop is one of only three locations in the United States where you can experience rolling down a hill inside this 11-foot inflatable ball), interconnected climbing features, a water slide, and the longest ziplines on Roundtop property. The Vertical Trek zipline canopy tour features 10 of Roundtop's zip lines, a Tarzan swing, bridges, cargo nets, and a boulder field. Adventure Camps are Roundtop's exciting summer camps for children that range from day camps to residential camps. Kids get to enjoy the outdoors while remaining physically active and forming lasting friendships. Last, but not least, facilitated team-building at the ropes course is perfect for any group seeking to understand both inter and intra-personal communication better.
Roundtop also features one of the largest paintball operations in Central Pennsylvania with 11 fields and a retail shop. Groups ranging from children's birthday parties to bachelor parties can take advantage of this exhilarating good time. The really great thing about Roundtop is that all the experiences actively engage each participant. Nothing at Roundtop is passive, allowing you and the whole family to get outside and enjoy the beauty and adventure only the outdoors can offer.
