After a 45-minute walk from the parking lot, you will reach the lodge and the base station for Temple Basin's ski area. Your equipment sends you into a "flying fox" a material lift that unfortunately is not made for people. Upstairs you have access to a kitchen, you can buy food, beds are good and friendly staff. A little cheaper to buy ski passes if you join the Ski Club that owns Temple Basin. Clubfields are often owned by a club, hence the name.
If you get a dump when you're there, you'll have access to the sickest bowls and areas that NZ can give.

Even ski school is available but I would not trust 100% of the guys who worked there, some half-deserved Canadian ships who worked there for 10 years. They also drove the ski patrol on their Fischer RC4 from -84.

Also nutcracker lifts powered by a Subaru tractor engine.

Charming and solid!

The lovely walk up to the area is worth it!
3 replicas (Nutcracker lifts) these cover 2 bowls if you expect a little hiking.
Watch out for stup as these are not excellent.
Good and changing terrain, lots of small drops and corridors. A lovely playground.
Since divorces are included in the price, ask for a guided tour outside regular scratches, many small hiding places.
At full moon it may be night skiing if the staff feels for it, worth experiencing.
In case of fresh snow: take care when it is going to blow up soon.
Mostly no snow in the valley where you go from looking out to enjoy the view.

Not as brilliant as Craigieburn neighbor but snowmobile (11m per year) o very charming. Leave the equipment down at the launcher o Start the rather strenuous 45min walk up to the lifts. Here you really live in the middle of the mountain. As always in NZ, the staff are disgustingly nice o the food is good. Same low price as in Craigieburn (1500 for a week with ALL !!) Even this clubfield lacks a pistol which means 100% offpiste! Strong rocks to drop off.
