Peak elevation:1,335 feet
Skiable acres:100
Longest run:4,100 feet

Roundtop Mountain Resort is located in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania, due north of Baltimore, Maryland. Roundtop has been around for many years and continues to offer convenient skiing for folks in the Baltimore/D.C. area. Roundtop was one of the first ski resorts in the area to offer tubing

Like all resorts in the area, Roundtop is lit for night skiing. Roundtop offers two terrain parks for freestyle skiing and snowboarding. You’ll find 16 trails at Roundtop, serviced by 9 chairlifts. Some of Roundtop’s trails wind down the mountain, in contrast with straight-down slopes common at many Mid-Atlantic resorts. Roundtop is somewhat rustic; it doesn’t have any high-speed lifts, and tends to draw more of a local crowd than resorts such as Liberty or Whitetail.

Roundtop is now part of the Vail Resorts family after a 2019 purchase. Previously, it was owned by Peak Resorts, and before that, Snow Time. Its new ownership means you can purchase a single Epic pass and ski at Whitetail, Liberty, Roundtop, Jack Frost, Big Boulder, and dozens of resorts across North America.

In addition to winter sports, activities offered seasonally at Roundtop include a ropes course, zipline tour, and paintball.

For the 2020-2021 winter season, Roundtop will be following the COVID protocols of its parent company, Vail Resorts. Face coverings will be required at the resort, and on-mountain access will be managed via reservations, limiting how many visitors can visit per day. All transactions across the resort will be cashless this winter.
