Season Countdown Begins

What a welcome site seeing the first snow of the season. Read on for updates on the Ski Sales, The Rainbow Ball/Groomer Fundraiser, Staff Vacancies for the season, and our new snowmaking pump. 

Ski Sales

It’s that time again – Ski Sales are on NEXT WEEKEND 11 June – Nelson & 12 June – Blenheim.

It’s the perfect time to haul out your winter gear and try things on. We are gratefully accepting to sell on your behalf anything related to skiing, snowboarding, and the like – including clothing, helmets, boots, board, skis, etc. This is a great opportunity to sell or purchase gear, help others enjoy their time in the mountains, and raise money for the club. 20% of the sale goes towards Rainbow Sports Club and you keep the rest.
All event details are on our website

There will be a special deal on season passes and midweek day passes for those that turn up to the sale.

On the day – buying does not start until 11.00 in both venues, if you turn up early you will be waiting as the volunteers are still setting up.  We will be following the school protocols and will restrict numbers in Nelson to 100 people max at any one time. Please bring a mask with you and we encourage you to wear it.

Rainbow Sports Club Ball – We hope to see you there!

Fast approaching – to be held Saturday 18 June, at The Playhouse Café – be sure not to miss out and get your ticket now. A social event for our members and community. 

Come dressed in your best attire or retro dress up – the choice is yours. Grab your ticket now so you don’t miss out!…/rainbow-sports…/nelson
