Set up for you
Rental equipment and gear

We have rental facilities available at Whakapapa, offering ski and snowboard rental equipment, and also warm outerwear. All rentals can be ordered ahead of time and collected on mountain. On collection, our trained staff will be on hand to ensure the best fit and set up for your size and ability. They are also available for you to return and readjust if necessary over the day.

Why rent?

It might be that you are new to snowsports and wanting to learn what gear you like prior to making a purchase. You could also be a more experienced skiier, wanting to try something new or wanting gear right sized for the current conditions. If you are travelling some distance, renting equipment and gear on mountain is more convenient and cheaper than lugging weighty equipment around. As a parent of a child that is simply growing too fast, renting could be an option rather than investing in gear that they will soon outgrow.

Recreational vs. performance rentals

Choose performance rentals to increase your speed and explore different types of terrain and more of Whakapapa. Our performance skis and snowboards are hand selected for Whakapapa conditions, and are suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders only. The premium equipment, from brands including Apollo, Atomic, Dynastar, and Head, can be demo'd or even purchased, on a first come first served basis, on mountain. If you're first learning how to ski, or still working on controlling your speed and stopping, recreational or 'standard' rentals are perfect for you.
