First Timers

Hey first timers, you’ve come to the right place!  Here are some handy tips for your first time on the snow:

Grab a first timer package

This includes a beginner lift pass, rental equipment and a lesson. You learn the fundamentals – how your skis/board works, how to stand and slide etc.  It’s designed to get you up and going on your skis or board with a little help from one of our highly trained snowsports instructors.

Please see First Timer Packages for additional information and pricing.

Take a lesson

When you’re getting your lift pass, why not book in for a lesson as well.  Group lessons and private lessons are available throughout the day with our highly trained snow instructors.  Whatever your ability, they’ll help you improve.

What to wear

We are known for being a super sunny ski field but remember you’re in an alpine environment and staying warm and dry is key to enjoying your day.

We do not rent any clothing. However, we do sell gloves, hats and googles. Kiwi Treasures located in Lake Tekapo Village have a selection of jackets and pants for rental.

Ski and Snowboard hire

You can hire all your equipment from us on the mountain. We hire helmets, skis, boots, poles and snowboards and boots from our base facility.  We have hundreds of sets of ski and snowboard equipment for all ages and abilities.  Our friendly staff will guide you through getting the right fit.


Remember to keep yourself fed and hydrated, when you’re having so much fun you forget how much exercise you’re actually doing!

Have a bit of fun with a toboggan

We hire toboggans so bring your picnic, the family and enjoy a few slides on our purpose built slope!
