Rental Gear

We offer you a large range of skis and snowboards from leading brands such as Salomon, Burton, Atomic and Fischer. Our policy of continuous upgrade of stock ensures that we maintain the highest standards of equipment from season to season, so nothing will compromise your experience on the snow.

Our range of skis and snowboards, boots and accessories cater for all levels, ages and ability. We can supply gear for people from age 2 upwards. Whether it is your first time on the snow or you are a full on charger, we can sort you out head to toe.

For those that are keen enough, we even rent ski mountaineering equipment. This includes, touring ski’s, boots and bindings, skins, snow shoes and avalanche transceivers. We are the complete mountain rental shop.


We can kit you out in the correct clothing for your time on the mountain. We can fit from age 3 upwards in warm and protective clothing – pants, jackets, and goggles, that meet the demands of the New Zealand alpine environment.


We hire out ski and snowboard helmets, avalanche transceivers, snow shovels and probes. If you are going big or going backcountry, then we have the right kit for you.


All of our gear is carefully selected, then prepared and maintained by an experienced technician. All skis and snowboards are serviced/waxed each time they are returned to us so you have the best experience possible when you get on to the snow.
