Resort Overview


Area Profile

Temple Basin

Temple Basin is a real alpine environment on the Main Divide of the Southern Alps at the heart of Arthur's Pass National Park in the south island of New Zealand. The car park is alongside State Highway 73, 4kms west of the Arthur's Pass Village. A well-defined walking track takes you up to the Lodges and the Field, taking about 45mins and giving great views of the pass and surrounding mountains.

Temple Basin Ski Area covers a great variety of terrain spread over four separate basins. There are gentle slopes for complete beginners, adrenalin pumping challenges for the expert, and everything in between. The ski field's highest point is at 1923 metres. It faces north-west and offers long sunny days over 320 hectares of skiable terrain with a vertical rise of 427 metres.

There are two modern lodges offering bunk room accommodation for 120 people, only metres from the tows. Ski and snowboard hire, along with expert instruction are all available on the mountain.
