Road Conditions & Traffic


The Temple Basin Carpark is located right beside State Highway 73, 4 kms west of Arthurs Pass Village. The road is sealed and well maintained so chains are rarely needed but will be need to be carried for the next few days. The free goods lift which carries all gear and supplies up the mountain, is also located beside State Highway 73 but 800m further west from the carpark. The access walking track starts from the west end of the carpark and is reasonably filled in with snow with icy conditions present.

Snow Conditions

Average depth of 5cm

Frozen cement that has roller-balled and avalanched at high elevations, very patchy and exposed rock below 1600m. We need a bit more snow dancing and a top-up to run the tows.

Last snowfall was 20cm on Sat, 1st Jul

Events and Terrain Park Info

Temple Basin has superb terrain that includes wide open basins, steep chutes and bowls and a variety of aspects that test the most experienced riders out there. We also have gentle west-facing slopes and more forgiving features that are excellent for beginners and intermediates in the long sunny afternoons. Night skiing is available when conditions permit.
