Ski Roundtop, located in Pennsylvania, will be serving up some new features this winter season for skiers and snowboarders.
Snowboarders will be greeted with a rebuilt half-pipe that is longer and wider. Roundtop will be grooming this half-pipe with a state-of-the-art Scorpion half-pipe groomer, one of only ten in the world. 50 new Oxygen snowboard rentals have been added to Roundtop’s inventory, along with 150 new Switch step-in boot/binding systems. A sound system has been installed to provide music in the half-pipe.
300 new Salomon shaped skis have been added as rentals, allowing skiers to try out the shaped ski revolution. 2,000 sets of new composite rental poles have also been added to the inventory. So the skiers don’t feel left out, a sound system has been installed on the mogul run Gunbarrel. In cooperation with Vietnam Veteran’s groups, Roundtop has added new adaptive monoski equipment for disabled skiers.
“Mountain Dew Fun Zones” will be popping up over the mountain, adding terrain features such as tabletop jumps and spines for both skiers and snowboarders to enjoy.
Roundtop will be offering Ski and Board Advantage Cards, which offer a myriad of savings to cardholders. These cards can be used at Roundtop and Ski Liberty. Cardholders can get 40% off regularly priced lift tickets, and discounts on lodging at Ski Liberty. Some benefits also extend to New York’s Ski Windham resort.
