Since 1929 Temple Basin has been serving the skiing community of New Zealand. Between a mandatory 45min hike to the hill from the road and rope tow lifts, the crowds tend to be non-existent even when we were there on a powder weekend.
The terrain is all time as well. With no groomed trails and plenty in bound and out of bound bowls within close proximity of the huts, it is a playground for skiers and boarders of higher riding caliber.
Then with all this amazing terrain you get the staff who are a crazy cool bunch of young ski bums.
Here’s a little video of our time at temple during splitfest 2016. Enjoy!
