3 Improvements For You This Winter

Across Queenstown and Wanaka, Snopro grows and evolves all the time. At the front of our mind is one thing. You, the customer.

Simple logistic changes, booking systems and, of course, ski equipment are all introduced for one reason. To give you a simple seamless ski experience from booking right through to clipping out at the end of your holiday.

There are too many improvements to mention for 2018. You’d probably be bored if we sat you down and unleashed ALL of our ski tech nerdiness upon you anyway.

So here’s the big news that guarantees better ski hire in Queenstown and Wanaka.

 

Deluxe ski boots - Performance. Comfort. Warmth.

The Deluxe Boot is packed full of features and technology that creates a high-performance yet comfortable ski day.

Designed for intermediate to advanced skiers who want some added performance.

Will it make my skiing better?

The Deluxe Boot is packed full of features and technology that creates a high-performance yet comfortable ski day.

Slimmer yet stronger boot design provides a superior foot hug while ensuring maximum heel hold.

Its 4 buckle set up combined with an athletic shell structure stiffens the flex of the ski boot allowing proficient skiers to generate more power and stability.

Up your game instantly with a 40% flex advantage over a standard ski boot thanks to supportive performance.

Reduced weight, walk mode and gripped rockered soles keep you in the zone no matter where you are on the mountain.

Comfortably drop the kids off at ski school before clipping into ski mode and ripping the morning groomers.

Become agile and featherlike in the soft powder with lightweight sensor grid technology.

Stay slip free no matter where you end up, whether it's in the bar after a long day or clambering up some off-piste lines.

Endless reasons to love these boots.

Tweener Skis for Young Rippers

The Tweener Series is perfect for growing skiers who are advancing their ability over the whole mountain.

Skis for teenagers at Snopro ski hire in Queenstown and Wanaka

Introducing the new Tweener range for 2018. A ski setup for advancing young skiers that need a whole lot more from their gear. It’s no secret that children are fast learners, even more so when it comes to skiing.

 

No fear, high gear.

 

So it stands to reason that they need equipment to match their evolving age and ability each year. A simple kids ski isn’t going to help them progress any further or provide maximum enjoyment. Whilst a full adult ski may be unwieldy and perhaps dangerous.

In our experience, one serious challenge in getting the right people on the right equipment is within the 7 to 16 years old category. Many skiers this age are experienced and strong skiers. Often children's skis don’t cut the mustard while a burly adult's ski just doesn’t feel right.

The Tweener ski provides instant progression and enjoyment. Twintip, quality skis add the performance your young ripper needs. Book now.

Is the Tweener Series suitable?

We now carry a range of skis in this series up to 168cms in length, including the Rossignol Sprayer and Atomic Punx for 2018.

Every shredder will be stoked with a tweener ski.

Twin-tips keep the next-generation freestylers rockin.

Stiffer camber allows for satisfying speed demon carves on morning groomers.

Plus a little bit of width opens up the whole mountain when it's time to start exploring.

They look awesome too, with rugged funky graphics that even impress the snow divas.

Why we’re bringing you the Tweener ski package?

“It’s something that I’ve seen a growing demand for. Now we’ve got children who have grown up every year using our equipment” explains Snopro founder Justin.

“They come back year on year and a lot of them are awesome shredders now, so we really wanted something to suit.”

“Plus my own kid is ripping around on skis now. Basically, why would I expect customers to ski on something I wouldn't put my own kid on.”
