Regional and Mountain Information
At the top of the South Island a compact area of mountain ranges and forested valleys known as the Nelson Lakes National Park is home to the beginning of the breath-taking Southern Alps. The National park has something for everyone.
Rainbow is the most northern ski area on the Chill Pass. It's a seriously fun and friendly ski area, with facilities to match a medium-sized commercial operation. There's extensive snow making, a terrain park (with it's own tow), 5 tows including a t-bar and platter, with plenty of grooming. The terrain caters for beginners, intermediate and advanced.
