Snow Gear Rental Place In Wellington

Postby ryancrawcour on Fri 29/May/09 10:17am

Hi all;

we're planning on hitting the slopes fore the first time ever at Turoa end of June. in order to maximise our time on the slopes by avoiding the potentially loooooooooooooong queues and lack of good gear at the ski center we're hoping to book our gear beforehand.

is there anywhere in Wellington that does snowboard, boots, clothing rental for 3 days?

is it better to go to somebody like Roy Turner up in the National Park?
or take the chance and go for whatever gear there may be at the ski centers?

thanks

If its your first time and you intend to take lessons, probably best to get on the mountain. Get an all inclusive gear/lifts/lesson package. Other advantages of getting it up the mountain are you can swap gear if you find it doesn't fit, and don't have to pay if you miss a day through weather.

End of June is not school holidays. If you're going during the week queues wont be too bad.

I'd get it at the mountain (preferably as part of the package that includes lift passes). That way you avoid paying but not using if the weather is bad. On the mountain, the queues aren't as bad as they used to be - just get there before the busloads of tourists.

FYI there is a shop in the Overseas Terminal that hires gear out, they have very good prices. I think they even have a 60% off sale on now too
