Temple Basin Policy for Day-Trippers
We are OPEN under Orange traffic light rules, but our operation is different than normal. We have implemented the following rules so that both staff and guests at Temple Basin have a SAFE and enjoyable time. We will do our best to ensure compliance with these rules, however, as a small club skifield, we place a degree of trust in our guests to adhere to these requirements.
If you are sick or have any symptoms, please stay at home. Should you experience any covid related symptoms or doubt your health prior to your trip, please stay home and get in touch for a refund. A full refund will be given minus a 10% admin fee.
