Rainbow Update May 2019

Ski Sale Change of Date
Firstly we have had to postpone the ski sales which were supposed to be this weekend. It will now be June 15th and 16th in Nelson and Blenheim respectively. One of the major suppliers to the ski sale has had gear, arriving from Europe, held up in Brisbane. After much deliberation, we have decided to postpone the sale. This is to ensure we have maximum gear available for purchase which is good for customers and Rainbow. Apologies for the short notice and the change of plans. Check out facebook for more information and see you all in a couple of weeks.

2019 Season Opening Update

2019 Season Opening Update
Good News....Rainbow Ski Area will open our beginners and intermediate area ONLY as scheduled on Friday the 28th of June (The T-Bar will NOT be open). Our plan, weather permitting, is to open on the 28th, 29th & 30th of June (NO T-Bar or upper Mountain), close for the week and then reopen for the season on the 6th of July with all lifts. (snow/slope conditions permitting)

Though we have had no natural snow for a while our SnowSecure plan and our Operations crews have done an amazing job of making snow to enable us to open the Pomeroys’ Handle Tow in the Beginners area and our Callahan and Martella Platter on our Intermediate slope. This is a great opportunity for families and those new to skiing and riding to come up and experience Rainbow. Day Ticket Prices will be set at the learners’ area only.

The road has recently received new material/gravel and some sections have seen a much-needed improvement, so it is ready for the season, all thanks to Edridge
