These are skis or boards which are a few years old (not super old straight skis), and an older boot, but they are well tuned/maintained, and are still great skis or boards for beginners or cost conscious intermediates. These skis/boards ard not pieces of junk, just older.

These are skis or boards normally one to three seasons old which are in very good condition, well tuned and maintained, and suit skiers/boarders of all levels. As a comparison, you would expect to pay between $30-$40 a day to hire skis or boards in similar condition at other rental stores.

These are new seasons skis and boards, or near new last seasons. Latest shapes, sidecuts, short and long radius, on and off trail. Fantastic value at $35 for the first day and $25 for everyday thereafter. Performance rentals get the newest selection of boots.

High-end skis and boards ranging from on-trail rippers/race skis, to fun wide twin-tips and powder fats - and everything in between. As the official Atomic and Salomon Demo Centre for the North Island, you can try before you buy or just keep renting the latest in ski/board technology.

KIDS equipment:

Our rental of Kids equipment, be it skis or boards, is based on weight, height and foot size........NOT age. This equipment is normally a much lighter weight ski/board and boots with light 'flex', and come with recommendations on skier/rider weights etc.

As a general rule, kids boots run up to a Mondo 26.6 boot and with skis and board lenghts up to 140cm, and suit riders under 50kg. If your child does not fit into any of the 3 measures, then they have to use Adult equipment, and most opt for the Budget gear, which is $5 a day more.

This was a new package in 2012. It suits families or groups that just want to spend a few hours on the mountain, maybe going on a chairlift sightseeing ride, or riding a sled in the sliding area. Or just wanting some warm dry clothes to watch family and/or friends from the cafe decks. For 4 hours we offer all the clothes and boots you require to have a great time. If you wish to go sledding, then we strongly suggest you just rent a sled from Mt Ruapehu up on the mountain. They have a dedicated sled counter (no big queues) for $10 for 1 hour or $20 a day. Saves a load of hassle dragging the big sleds around the carparks and fitting/transporting them into your car. Don't forget your sunscreen and camera!!!
