While I was on my trip to Australia my dad was busy with his bucket list resort tour ticking off all the resorts around Queeenstown and Wanaka. Next place our list was Temple Basin. I was amped for this one because I have never been there and everyone harps on about how awesome it is. We drove up the west coast from Queenstown, that drive is crazy just so scenic. It took us two days after visiting a bunch of sights, receding glaciers, taking some photos and stopping to look for greenstone which apparently you can find at the beach(problem is it doesn't look green in its natural form it looks like lots of other rocks on the beach so who knows what we found). Anyway eventually made it to Temple Basin. So at Temple you hike about a hour into a lodge to stay and ride. The lodge staff cook big dinners for everyone staying so that tasted amazing after that hike. Luckily he weather cleared that evening after a bit of fresh snow. I met up with Connor Harding, Piers Harding and Jeremy Town who where up for the day. Its been a while since I used nutcrackers which if you don't know is like the sketchiest lift system there is, you cannot relax around these things or you will loose fingers. Only ended up riding them a couple of times and then went and hiked a line and a couple of other features we found. Was a super fun day and was stoked to check out Temple although I only really got to scratch the surface of all the accessible terrain there. Hiking down at the end of a days hiking kinda sucked was wiped out by the time we got to the car! Next time I would stay longer.
