Browns Ski Shop - Queenstown

NOTE: Downloadable images at the bottom of this page!

Browns Ski Shop offers quality ski & snowboard rental equipment which is tuned after every rental.

We deliver and collect equipment from most major hotels in town as well as offer the facility to take days off without paying for gear. 


We know what we are doing, we have been at it for 30 years. We have local knowledge & snow expertise second to none.  We also have a “Robot” which tunes our equipment to the same high standard as it comes from the factory! 


Safety is paramount to us, and we have the only electronic binding calibrator in the South Island.




Everything we do is driven by our love of skiing & riding and we want to help your customers get the same BUZZ.  We strive to be the best in the business for quality gear, local knowledge, ski & snowboard expertise – we’ve been in the industry since 1980.  Our whole company philosophy is built around making the rental process as hassle free & as easy as possible for the customer.

    Fabulous openings for all of the Southern Lakes ski areas have really made Queenstown a winter wonderland this season! Great base depth, numerous snow falls and recent cold clear conditions have really set us up for a winter to remember for all the right reasons!

    The Audi quattro Winter Games NZ will start next month from 12-25 August. Events will be held at Coronet Peak, Cardrona and (TBC'd) the Snow Park. As the Official Ski Shop of the Games, we at Browns Ski Shop are more than a little excited!

    SEVEN WORLD CUP events are bringing the biggest and brightest stars of the snow sports world to Queenstown and Wanaka. International ski and snowboard racing, half pipe action and ski/boarder X is quite something to see live (- potentially the understatement of the season!). Spectators will be able to access the viewing areas on the slopes by foot, and there will also be an entertainment “hub” in operation for the duration of the games in Earnslaw Park. A real must to check-out for big screen action, medal ceremonies with the Athletes, and also a very interesting adventure business showcase amongst other entertainment which will be laid on over the 11 days of the event.

    Hope to see you there!

    Another extremely exciting winter season is knocking on the door already! Again this season Browns Ski Shop continues to show our support for all things “snow” as a sponsor of the NZ Winter Games – recognized as one of the top 5 events of the winter sports international circuit. These Games will be out of this world with no less than 7 World Cup events during the 11 day programme.

    We are looking forward to opening our retail shop for the season in mid May, but before we do, this season we are going to have a very special one-off sale weekend for all 2012 stock, on 4 & 5 May.
