Skiing and Ski Touring
Nestled in a southeast basin high up on the St Arnaud range Rainbow Ski Field has it all.
It is a sunny field, family friendly, is rated beginner 25%, intermediate 55%, advanced 20%. If you are a powder junkie then Powder Valley is for you. The off piste skiing surrounding the field is as challenging as you want to make it. It has excellent ski and snow board instruction, a café and a day lodge.
Nelson Lakes Motels and the Traver- Sabine Lodge is just 35ks from the ski field, we are an ideal base to stay. Our Cottages and the Travers-Sabine Lodge are perfect for families.
If ski touring is your passion, Robert Ridge and the Angelus Basin is for you. Staying in Angelus Hut, putting your skis on and pushing off across the frozen lake, then following the slopes down to Hinapouri tarn, followed by a brisk 50 minute skin will bring you to the summit of Mt Angelus, where the view is panoramic and the only limit is your imagination
