Great people and very good new gear plus I like their hot chocolate drink machine
straight off the plane to Browns for the gear so a drink is welcome

Friendly staff, good service, listened to my concerns about renting comfortable ski boots for really narrow feet and the boots were fabulous. Dropped gear at hotel, and picked it up when we had finished with it.

Awesome place with friendly, patient staff who are very very knowledgeable in regards to the equipment you can buy and rent. Highly recommend going here to buy boots or to just rent as you will get a great experience with them. Thanks again.

Current snow conditions report from Remarkables....awesome! Cold weather is keeping the snow superb! Pic from Wednesday.

4th July 2017

We celebrate a special individual this season - Browns Ski Shop was founded in 1980 & for 30 of those years Haggis has been in the boot room - he is Ski Wikipedia personified and still the most enthusiastic skier in the southern hemisphere. Congrats Haggis, your gold watch is in the mail! Here’s to the next 30!
Congratulatory whisky donations gratefully accepted c/o 39 Shotover Street :-)

Conditions are really starting to shape up nicely here in the Southern Lakes. The Brown's crew have been out and about enjoying the conditions up Remarkables, plenty of fresh snow around the last few days! Keep it coming!

Tyler making headlines in this week's Mountain Scene - great to have his achievement recognised!

Some of our staff were out and about during this stunner of a day, the inversion layer was amazing. Ski touring around the Remarkables is always good for the soul before work starts in the afternoon 😎
