Celebrating 40 years in 2020!

Browns Ski Shop offers quality ski & snowboard rental equipment which is tuned after every rental, ensuring nice easy-to-turn skis which will make everyone feel like a hero!


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 will be turning 40 years in 2020! We have local knowledge & snow expertise second to none.


Safety is paramount to us, and we have the only electronic binding calibrator in Queenstown; all our gear is regularly tested to ensure our skis are as safe as possible.





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.
