Ski Racing at Rainbow
The St Arnaud Ski Race Foundation was formed 15 years ago, it is a not
for profit incorporated society, and is responsible for organizing all
the ski races at Rainbow throughout the winter season. The organization
was founded to help promote and facilitate ski racing in the top of the
south. The Foundation puts any surplus funds it has back into ski
racing. It does this by supporting young racers, buying race equipment
and keeping the cost of ski racing at Rainbow down to accessible levels,
for all who wish to participate.
With a hard core committee of 8 and many extra helpers on race days, the
Foundation organizes race registrations, (with help from Sport Tasman
for the Inter-secondary school event) and come race day with logistical
help from the Rainbow staff set up the race hill, electronic timing for
most races, and then when the race is over, results are calculated and a
prize giving in front of the café completes the race day.
Race dates have already been set for this season and can be viewed on the "events"
page on this website.
