Rainbow Ski Area is high in the north of the Southern Alps within the  Nelson/Marlborough region. Reaching a height of over 1760 metres, Rainbow captures regular winter snow, complemented by  snow making, all groomed to create a stunning winter playground.

The wide uncrowded slopes and well groomed trails provide superb terrain for beginners and intermediates while advanced skiers can challenge themselves in the high powder runs and chutes. Snowboarders love the varied terrain, jumps, bumps and drops. A terrain park has been developed, offering more thrills & spills for adventurous boarders and skiers.
