ALL DOC FACILITIES CLOSED! Limited facilities in Arthur's Pass Village.
COVID-19 RESPONSE: ALL DOC campsites, huts, tracks, great walks, and visitor centres are now closed throughout New Zealand. HUNTING, FISHING, TRAMPING ETC IS NOT PERMITTED! No one is to use campsites or any hut for self-isolation or "lock-down"! Where ever you find yourself NOW (midnight 25th March), is where you MUST live for the NEXT 4 WEEKS+!

Only limited facilities / resources will be available in Arthur's Pass Village after midnight Wednesday 25th March.



When the weather is cold enough, snow falls on the peaks and valleys of the Park. In an average winter Arthur's Pass Village can expect at least three or four good snowfalls, and Temple Basin - the closest skifield - gets about three months of good skiing.

Most of the heavy snowfalls occur between June and September, but there is always a posssiblity of an unseasonal fall. Last year we had several heavy snowfalls as late as October and early November and there was snow on the tops Christmas Day!
