The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is scores of fun all snow season long. This ski resort has a much lower than average ratio of hard trails and a much higher than
    average share of green and blue runs. The ski map on this page will give you a good idea what Rainbow is like. This ski area has so much snow, 16 feet yearly, and that is a tremendously great coverage. This is a more petite than average ski hill with a pretty
cozy drop from top to bottom when you compare it to other ski resorts in the region. The 320 foot vertical drop is naturally not that much to brag about, but Rainbow compensates for it in other ways. Getting your skiing muscles started and getting out of the house for a while will have you coming back. This is a family friendly ski resort with loads of intermediate or beginner slopes for novices. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, there are lots of splendid locations for that in the vicinity.
