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.
Snow on the ground, the snow guns ready for action

There is still time to purchase a Membership pass.
