First Timers Package

First timers package

Roundhill’s first timers package includes a beginners lift pass, rental and a first timers lesson.  You learn the fundamentals – how your skis/board works, how to stand and slide etc.  This package will get you up and going with help from one of our highly trained snow instructors.  Lesson numbers are limited so get in quick.

Our first timers package includes;

  • Beginner’s lift pass
  • Rental equipment  – Skis, boots and poles or snowboard and boots
  • First timer’s 1 ½ hour lesson

Group lesson times: 10:30am & 1:30pm.  We recommend being at Roundhill 1 hour before your lesson to allow plenty of time for ticketing and rental fitting.

Minimum ages:  The minimum age for a child to join a group ski lesson is 5 years and a group snowboard lesson is 8 years.

What to wear

We are known for being a super sunny ski field but remember you’re in an alpine environment and staying warm and dry is key to enjoying your day.

  • Boots or shoes with a bit of tread as snow and ice can be slippery before you get your ski or snowboard boots on
  • Base layers of merino, thermal or polar fleece – numerous layers that you can take off as you warm up and cool down throughout the day
  • Warm, waterproof pants and jacket (we do not have clothing for hire, however there is a small selection available at Kiwi Treasures in Lake Tekapo Village)
  • Waterproof gloves
  • Goggles or sunglasses
  • A helmet
  • Sunscreen and lip balm

Please see our Plan Your Trip page for additional information if this is your first trip to Roundhill.
