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 tickets at Roundtop are available all day. This fun activity will still 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'. For children ages 4 and under, there is a special Kiddie Tubing area designed for the smallest guests.
If you'd like to try skiing or snowboarding, you shouldn't feel intimidated. Roundtop is a great place to learn and offers lessons six times daily for all skill levels. They also offer a three-day Discovery Program package that is ideal during a long weekend visit. The slopes range from easy to extremely difficult and include a terrain park and a vertical drop of 600' with a top elevation of 1,355'.
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. And when you need to warm up, head inside to the Fireside Pub & Grill.
Roundtop is scheduled to open on December 11, 2020, for the 2020/2021 winter season. Face coverings will be required in every part of the operation, including while loading and riding on chairlifts and in gondolas, inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons. No one will be permitted on the mountain without a face covering. Cloth neck gaiters are allowed. Face coverings are not required during the physical acts of skiing or snowboarding if the guest is maintaining a proper physical distance.

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.
Throughout the year, 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 you can have you are participating and 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.
