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.
