Visitor Reviews of Temple Basin

Oli Robinson from New Zealand writes:

Temple Basin is without a doubt the best field I've ever ridden or skiied at. If you can handle the walk up and rope tows then you will be blown away by the awesome natural terrain and primo snow. Temple Basin gets snow when no other field does due to its norwest aspect, perfect for plenty of freshies. Amazing club atmosphere, be ready to party at the lodge with awesome food and cheap accomodation on the mountain. Transworld snowboard magazine reviewers once said something like "If I had to stay at one place for the rest of my life to snowboard, it would be Temple Basin".
