Getting to Roundhill

Getting to Roundhill is easy! We’re just 32km drive from Lake Tekapo Village.

Note: There is no public shuttle service to Roundhill.

We are located approximately:

Driving from Lake Tekapo Village

Our address is 2544 Lilybank Road. Lilybank Road joins State Highway 8 on the eastern side of Lake Tekapo Village.

Enjoy the stunning scenery as you drive 24km along the Eastern side of Lake Tekapo on Lilybank Road, then turnoff onto our access road which is only 8km long and has a wide and gradual gradient.

Please always carry snow chains as you’re driving in an alpine environment and be ready to fit them if required.  Chains must be fitted to all 2WD vehicles at the “Fit Chains Here” sign if it is out.

Only in exceptional circumstances will the fitting of chains to 4WD vehicles be required, if this is the case it will be advised in the snow report and a staff member will be stationed at the chain fitting area to ensure compliance.

For the safety of our staff and other road users, you must comply with our instructions around when and where chains are to be fitted. The assistance of those who have ignored our advice regarding chains will not be high on our agenda.

Our road is suitable for campervans and heavy vehicles too, with the same rules regarding chains as above.

For the current road status and conditions check out our snow report page on the day.

Park and picnic

At Roundhill you can park your vehicle right next to the slopes.  You are welcome to bring your BBQ’s and deck chairs and set up camp for the day.

Ski Area Status

Please check our snow report page on the day of your intended trip to Roundhill, as sometimes we may be closed due to unsafe weather conditions. Our Snow report is updated by 6:30am each morning, and throughout the day if conditions change.
