Get your equipment ready to hit the slopes!

Posted 5 July 2024

When hitting your first runs of the season, it’s important to make sure your skis and board are in the best condition (especially if they’ve been sitting in the cupboard all summer).  

We recommend dropping your equipment off to Falls Creek Sports, Slalom Plaza, where our expert team will tune, wax and repair your beloved gear, ready for the season! Browse through the photos below to see our brand-new Tuning Machine and expert team in action: 

There are many benefits to tuning your gear early season, including protecting your base from wear and tear following the previous season, fixing any binding or mount issues and having your edges sharp for the best turns and control! Find out more about the Tuning Services we offer.  

It’s a no-fuss service that will ensure you have the best time on the slopes. Watch the video below to know more about our Tuning Services here at Falls Creek. 

Rental Fleet Tuning 

Tuning is a big part of how we maintain our rentals fleet to make sure all guests enjoy the best skiing and snowboarding experience at Falls Creek.  

When you pick up your rentals from Falls Creek Sports, all equipment has gone through an extensive assessment process by our team, including tuning and waxing if necessary. This ensures the equipment is plenty of fun and suitable to the conditions no matter what time of the season! 

In preparation for the 2024 winter season we have upgraded our rental fleet, with over 300 new snowboards, 500 helmets and refreshed our most popular women’s boot, the Dalbello Vantage.

We also partnered with Envoro to recycle 3 tonnes of old rental equipment that was destined for landfill. This equipment has now been turned into road base material, ensuring we reduce the wastage from end-of-life skis, boards, boots and poles. 

Booking rentals from Falls Creek Sports is a stress-free way to get out on the slopes, with our stores located right next to key access lifts; Halley’s Comet and Eagle Express. Plus, we offer early collection from 3pm the day prior to your booking commencing, meaning you’re out on the slopes from first lifts!

Rentals for All Levels 

We have two key ranges on offer – Learn To Ride and Performance Rentals. Our Learn To Ride equipment is ideal for first timers getting their snow feet. They’re designed to be great learning skis and boards, helping you progress from green to blue terrain while building your confidence on various terrain.  

Our Performance Range is there to help you take the next step from beginner to intermediate, as it’s designed to give you better control on a greater variety of terrain, including blue and black runs. It does this by providing better edge-to-edge transitions, stability at faster speeds and is generally way more fun to ride with! All our gear in the Performance Range is of high quality and is less than three seasons old so you know you’re riding with the best products.   

For the best price, make sure to book your rentals online at least 7 days in advance to save up to 35%! As an Epic Australia Pass holder, you’ll receive an additional 20% off the online price – talk about value.
