Rainbow Cafe RFP 2022

Rainbow Ski Area is adjacent to the northern boundary of Nelson Lakes National Park high up on the Rainbow Range within the world famous Nelson/Marlborough lifestyle region. Reaching a height of over 1760 metres, Rainbow captures regular winter snow, complemented by extensive snow making, all superbly 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.

The Rainbow Ski Area is owned and operated by the Rainbow Sports Club Inc. Membership is open to anyone interested in ongoing snow sports in the Top of the South. The Club has a Committee (currently seven members), and employs staff to manage and operate the field. We are generously supported by the Top of the South Community.

Our Cafe´ is a place to refuel, rest and socialise over food and drink. Rainbow is seeking a vendor to operate our cafe´ and kitchen, who can operate as a partner continuing to cultivate a friendly and social atmosphere. We look forward to seeing your proposals.
