The 2014 season of snow up at Rainbow Ski Area has been one of the best yet.
Great late snow, and heaps of people using the ski field all season long, and having a great time of it. The snow came and went and came back again, and the field had some fantastic snow making conditions early on in the piece so got the snow guns blazing, giving Rainbow a great snow base to begin with.
The Bowater Toyota Slush Cup this season was epic, and held on the final, closing weekend. A weekend that had some pundits claiming that the powder up on the mountain made for the best snow day they had ever had on a New Zealand field, EVER!
The Bowater Motor Group, and more recently Bowater Toyota, have had a long affiliation with the ski field, and the various clubs that have been associated with the area over the decades. A strong relationship has been cultivated over this time, reinforced over the last couple of seasons with a rekindled sponsorship with Bowater Toyota helping them out with vehicles.
This past season they had the use of a customised 2014 Toyota Hilux double cab 4X4, a tough as nails work horse that had some reasonably high expectations placed upon it going into the job.
Rainbow Ski Area Mountain Manager was so impressed with the 2014 Toyota Hilux that he wrote us an email that we would love to share. An impartial (well slightly partial) testimony into living with a Hilux in the real world, with real working conditions. After all life in the mountains can be quite brutal.
A very sedate looking Toyota Sienta - lets see what some thoughtful customisation can do for the look of this plain jane!
Thinking outside the box often results in some quite unexpected, and stunning results.
When you are on the hunt for a vehicle for your business to use as both a utilitarian tool and a mobile advertising platform, often different is better, as it is more memorable. What can be more eye catching, and motivating, than a heavily customised "normal" vehicle for a business all about enhancing your ride.
Mag and Turbo Nelson have quite a knack for having the ability, and options in their showroom, to take the ordinary and make it spectacular. Whether you are rolling with a much admired "vintage" Toyota Supra, or this quite innocuous Toyota Sienta, the impact is only limited by your imagination, and the ingredients you bring to the table.
Mix in a healthy portion of a well made and super reliable vehicle, some clever graphics from consummate professionals Mark and the team at The Signman, and some show stopping wheels and dramatic lowering from Mag & Turbo Nelson.

Saturday the 11th of October was a busy day in Nelson. There was a lot on and the sun was burning brightly, luring the locals outside and to the beaches with the first tastes of summer.
That did not stop the hundreds of expectant and current parents from coming along to the Annesbrook Community Centre to enjoy the 2nd Annual Nelson Parent and Child Expo.
The team from Bowater Toyota turned up bright and early, some with their own children in tow, ready to answer all sorts of curly questions about vehicle safety, car seat attachments and whether or not the boot space would be enough to swallow a stroller, temporary cradle for the event of unplanned naps, 3 complete changes of outfits, various feeding tools, a play mat and assorted favourite toys, change mat and an enormous nappy bag for spontaneous trips to the park. Stuff that all new parents fret about.
We also contributed to the awesomeness of the event by putting up a great prize, a free weekend's use of one of our brand new 2014 demonstrator vehicles, to be won by one lucky attendee - and the winner is.......
If you are a new parent, or even a well seasoned one, the Nelson Parent & Child Expo happening this Saturday at the Annesbrook Community Centre is well worth the visit. This year it has been moved to this large community space at 40 Saxton Road, easily accessed of either the motorway heading south from Nelson, or from Main Road Stoke. There is plenty of parking on site and looking at a stall holders list it is going to be a feature rich day with plenty to see and do.
The team from Bowater Toyota are going to be set up in the entrance foyer with a couple of stunning new vehicles, the always popular, ready for anything Toyota RAV - and the new 2014 Toyota Yaris - a small car that packs in a whole lot of safety and technology into a small, very fuel efficient space. Perfect for zipping and zapping around town.
We will also have a great competition on the cards as well - the chance to win one of our great demonstrator vehicles for a weekend of your choice.
