Don’t stick with the same old same old, the ski’s that have sat in the back of the garage until winter comes around. Why not try out gear for a change?


Are you tuning your old skis after a day on the slope? Are you doing it at all? That’s maybe why you are not getting the performance you expect. Take the convenience and enjoyment of being on gear from our fleet.


If you feel like going to the next level then Turangi Ski has twin tip skis, performance skis.


New boots, like skis, are more advanced than ever before. Lightweight and flexible, our rental ski boots will add to the enjoyment of your day.


If you’re skiing and boarding skills are improving talk to us about performance gear.


We have quality crew who are trained & knowledgeable about our equipment. Our goal is providing you with the correct gear for your day so you come back to us with awesome memories – it’s about the whole experience!


Open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, weather dependent. Please phone 07 386 8658 outside these hours.
