best skiing with onfield accomodation ?temple basin

Hi,

We are spending 12 days skiing in New Zealand and would love some advice on where to go. We would like to stay on the mountain and have one beginner/intermediate and one intermediate/advanced skiier.

We are considering Temple basin, but have had people (none of whom have been there) warn us that

a) The field is too small to be interesting for 12 days of skiing

b) The nutcrackers are too hard to start a ski trip with

c) It is just like backcountry skiing (I am too scared for this, and do not want to ski anywhere I need avalanche gear)

I would love to hear some advice on these points, and also any other suggestions on where is the best ski resort.

Thanks!

Christchurch, New...
