Kids Fashion

In our winter playground you need to keep your kids comfy and warm.  We can help.

We have a great collection to suit their needs.  From 2 years and upwards, we've got it/them covered!

They'll be the BEST DRESSED ON THE SLOPES!  (and we've got a couple of Brands exclusive to us)

We are all about keeping your kids cosy and comfy whilst looking extremely, NOW!

We also have snow boots for rent @ $15 per pair per day - excellent for kids playing about in the snow, especially if you also want to rent one of our toboggans for a bit of family fun!

Our retail store also sells kids harnesses and "Edgie-Wedgies" which we recommend for kids around the 3 years old mark who are learning to ski or just need a bit of help keeping their pizza pointed in the front!

Kids Rental & Family Rates

We rent and retail equipment for children aged 3/4 years and older. We also offer families a special rate of 10% off on the cost of their rental equipment (minimum 1 adult and 1 youth or child renting) outside of the July school holidays.

Kids Equipment Buy Back Scheme

Now here's a good idea.......

If you purchase children’s skis and/or boots from us, we offer to buy the equipment back from you at up to 40% of its original value (depending on condition) when the kids grow and you purchase their next set of equipment from us. Talk to the retail shop team for more information.

Kids Equipment Packages

We try to make things as easy and cost effective for you as we can, so we have put together some retail packages (limited availability) of Fischer skis and bindings. The packages come in two lengths so that they are suitable for children of different ages and sizes. Talk to Haggis in the retail store for more information and availability.
