A day at Roundhill Ski Area, Tekapo

This year (2022)  has been a great snowfall season for Roundhill Ski Area, with excellent coverage on the field, and snow right down to lake level when we skied in late July.  From Tekapo Village, it was a 34km drive along Lilybank Road beside Lake Tekapo and up the short ski field road.  While on the slopes, we were  treated to picturesque scenes and saturated colours created by the winter lighting.
