Rainbow is located close to the Nelson Lakes National Park, just 2 hours drive from Nelson or Blenheim. Overlooking Nelson Lakes National Park with its extensive beech forest and beautiful Lake Rotoiti, the views from the top of the chairlift at Rainbow are spectacular. 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. Rainbow's season usually extends from the start of July to mid October and the south to south easterly aspect ensures excellent snow quality throughout the season. Rainbow is accessed from State Highway 63, between Blenheim and St Arnaud (40 min drive), where a range of accommodation can be found.

Visitor Reviews of Rainbow

Curly Todd from New Zealand writes:

One of New Zealand’s best Ski areas with terrain to cater to any ones ability. Rainbow has that real club laid back feel with staff and skiers/snowboarders alike having such a friendly accommodating attitude which is truly infectious. Rainbow hosts several events with the highlight for me being the Atomic Rainbow Masters held every year late August. This event consist of two events GS then SL, with the incredible unselfish organization being completed by the St Arnaud Ski Racing Foundation which makes my annual trip to Rainbow and the Rainbow Masters unmissable.
