Queenstown Snow Hire
Why Queenstown is your one stop shop for your ski and snowboard rentals:
- Don't want to spend every day on the mountain, but you still want to have an epic week of snowboarding or skiing? Book with us for more than four days and add in a rest day.
- Personalised fitting: we custom fit your gear. We don't just ask your size and throw your boots at you, we ensure you leave with the right fitting boots and the right skis or snowboard for the type of riding you want to do . We make sure you’ll be safe and comfortable while carving it up on the mountain
- We have a huge range of skis and snowboards to suit everyone, if its your first day or 200th we’ll have the equipment to suit you including our brand new 2023 range (yes 2023, not a typo we get some gear before the Northern Hemisphere does).
- We offer free gear exchanges, so if you don't like how something fits, or you want to try something different, we are happy to exchange it.
- Our equipment is tuned, serviced, checked, and repaired by our workshop staff between every hire so that when you take it on the mountain, it has been looked after as if it was our own. Equipment is waxed after every hire ready for you to have an epic time on the slopes!
- Helmets are included with any youth or child snowboard/ski gear hire, and wrist guards are included with any snowboard hire.

- What do I need to go skiing or snowboarding?
Skis or snowboard, boots, warm waterproof jacket and pants - all of which we rent in store!
You will also need some gloves, ski socks, a warm hat and goggles (we recommend not using sunglasses as they will fog up). We have a great range of these items available online or in-store from basic to high-spec options.
- Can I swap my skis for a snowboard or vice versa?
Of course! Head over to the dark side, you might like it..
- How often do you service your gear?
All our gear is checked and tuned after every hire. Even if it only went out for one day our team of experienced ski technicians will make sure it's fresh and ready for you to ride.
- What kind of gear do you have?
We have skis from Salomon, Volkl and Rossignol. Snowboards from Burton, Lib Tech and Salomon. We also have a demo fleet of all the skis and snowboards we sell in store. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- I'm not sure what size I will be - do I need to know before?
No two peoples' feet are the same - some have skinny feet, some have short chunky feet and ski boots can feel really weird. We measure everyone's feet in store and select a boot specifically for your foot. We have boots up to size 15! We then get you to try on both boots showing you how to put them on and fasten them properly. We won't move on to fitting you with skis until you are completely happy with the fit.
- What are your opening hours?
In peak winter we are normally open from 7:30am - 9:00pm. For our current opening hours check our store page here.
- Can I collect my gear the night before I go?
Of course! It's the best way to do it so you make the most of your time on the mountain. You can collect your gear for the next day anytime after 4pm the day before your hire is due to start.
- Do you offer rest days?
Yes, we appreciate that not everyone can ride all day every day. If you rent for more than 4 days then we offer 1 rest day, if you are renting for more than 6 days we offer 2 rest days. Renting for even longer? Get in touch with us email@example.com to discuss other options.
- What happens if I damage the gear whilst I've got it?
We offer damage protection on all of our rentals. This is $2 a day and covers any repairable accidental damage that may occur from hidden rocks on the trail. Note: it does not cover the total write off of the equipment, damage done due to negligence/improper use, damage due to use in terrain parks or loss & theft of equipment.
- Where is best to go on my first day skiing?
All the surrounding mountains are great! We recommend if it is your first time to head up to Coronet Peak - it's just a short 20 minute drive from town.
The Remarkables has some great off-trail terrain and terrain parks, Cardrona has awesome open trails and often feels a little less busy. Treble Cone has some incredible expert terrain. If you are going to be riding for a few days then why not try them all? There are busses available from town to all of the mountains.
- Do you offer group discounts?
We are happy to offer group discounts: as no group or group requirements are ever the same it's probably best you get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
