2021 Academy Update

Rainbow is pleased to confirm we will be offering a Saturday and Sunday Academy for 2021 on both an 8 and 4 lesson format!

Calling all Skiers and Snowboarders! The Snowsports Academy is our seasonal alpine adventure programme, developing your skills so you can be the best skier and snowboarder possible.

If you are aged between 4-17 years old, and you are an intermediate/advanced skier or snowboarder then this is the programme for you! There will be NO Level 1 classes offered with this programme.

We will build on your skills and confidence, explore all Rainbow terrain and show you the best spots on the mountain. We will work with you on all aspects of skiing or snowboarding. Technical skills, freeride, on and off piste, personal coaching, and team training.
