Rainbow will open this Saturday 4th of July for the 2009 season. They have a good 50 cm of snow around the base area thanks to their tireless team of snow makers who work through the cold and dark hours to bring everyone snow. The intermediate platter and learners areas will be operating. There is not enough cover to open the upper field at this stage, however the weather pattern for the next week is looking productive with plenty of natural snow on the way so fingers crossed.
