SLR...Ohakune's Rental and Tuning Specialists with an Indoor Climbing Wall


Since 1997, SLR has been providing Ohakune/Mt Ruapehu skiers and boarders with quality equipment for rental/hire.

We are 'Ohakune’s Rental & Tuning Specialists'.

SLR’s new store shares its site with Vertigo Climbing in the heart of Ohakune’s shopping centre next to the Pharmacy.



WINTER OPENING HOURS: During the winter, the shop opens at 7.30am everyday (7am on weekends) and closes at around 8pm midweek and 6pm Sat/Sun, subject to demand, and 12pm (midnight) on Fridays.



For 2013, SLR have raised the bar again. Last year we installed a database rental system, which provided our customers with a fast reliable service that both remembers them and their previous rentals, thereby making repeat rentals a hassle free experience. After a year learning and mastering the system, in 2013 repeat customers will be offered a web/smart phone messaging system, that will allow us to set up the equipment before you arrive, so you just have to pay and leave.... no queues...well that's the idea :) For more info refer HERE.

Also, due to great demand for our rental services, we have enlarged our rental area again this summer, creating a separate counter for renting and trying on clothing, before moving back to boot fitting, then moving around the shop to get your skis or board fitted. If you have your own boots, which are a great thing to own, then you don’t have to queue with others requiring boots/clothing, so thereby speeding up the whole rental process even more.

For 2013 we have added 180 great new skis and boards to our fleet, including:

30 pairs of Salomon ‘Lord’ and ‘Lady’ all mountain 87mm under foot twin tips. We had these last year too, and they were very well received, so we got more.

40 more pairs of Atomic ‘Redster’ on-trail carving skis. Again these skis were used last season too with rave reviews.

In the Recreational Ski range lots of Atomic Vario and Women's Cloud skis.

Nordica ‘Cinnamon Girl’ women’s skis.

New Blizzard kids skis will keep the young ones ripping.

Over 40 new Burton boards have been added to the Recreational and Performance ranges.

More new boots, in both ski and snowboard and lots of clothing, including pants and jackets (all 10,000 micron) and gloves, so we will have you comfortable, stylish and most importantly warm and dry while on the slopes.

With our rental fleet growing to over 1200 skis and boards, and a very strong fleet replacement programme in place, SLR has become firmly entrenched as one of New Zealand’s premier rental stores.

We are also the North Island demo centre for Atomic and Salomon skis, of which we carry a good selection of 2012 and 2013 skis and boards from these top, industry leading brands. When the skis are not on the mountain being available as a demo ski for you to test for one or two runs, they are available in-store so you can book them for a day or two to really test them before you buy.

We take pride in giving you great equipment so you have a great day on the slopes!

All you will get from us is the best gear, the best service and the best price. Hope to see you this season!
