The Te Tau Ihu top-of-the-south region is very fortunate to have strong community support that enables Rainbow to offer winter alpine recreation opportunities for everyone. We benefit from the contributions of businesses, individuals, funding organisations and local bodies who collectively enable this wonderful facility to continue operating.

Rainbow Sports Club is a not for profit organisation that has successfully run Rainbow Ski Area for the last sixteen seasons. This has been made possible by the hundred's of volunteer days that are put in every year by contributors from club members to interested tradespeople to companies who share the vision of keeping the Rainbow a sustainable community asset.

There are many businesses who support Rainbow through the provision of services and sponsorship. Take a look at who has helped us out and let everyone know what a great help they have been to making it happen for Rainbow:
