Why Rent?

Why Rent

  • Flexibility! You don’t have to travel with heavy equipment
  • You can change boots & skis anytime through the day. If you break something, it is easily replaced
  • With the latest automated tuner our equipment is well maintained
  • Rental is available in great value packages, resulting in greater savings
  • You can take the equipment to surrounding mountains in the Southern Lakes & return it to our offices in either Wanaka or Queenstown when you are finished (conditions apply)


Hints & Tips

  1. Single layer sporting socks which reach up your upper calf work well in boots
  2. Avoid socks with high cotton content & ribbing or seams as these create pressure points
  3. Keep all extra clothing (pants leg) OUT of the top of the boot to avoid chafing
  4. Dress in layers so you can more easily adjust to temperature changes

Note for Rental

Identification is required for all rental. You will need to provide a credit card (preferable), passport or drivers licence. Failing this a fully refundable cash bond will be held until equipment is returned. Insurance can be purchased for $5 per person per day to cover you against damage.
