Temple Basin

resort image
Temple Basin is a true 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 ski area is one of the greatest skiing locations in the country and a wonderful environment to meet like-minded people who love the outdoors, the mountains and leaving the Latte drinkers behind! 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.
