Visitor Reviews of Mount Dobson

Michael Gibson from New Zealand writes:

This is a large ski field, with an easy access road despite its high altitude. The ski field facilities are basic but adequate. The terrain is spread out over 2 wide sheltered bowls accessed by a triple chair and T-bar. There is a beginners area with rope tow with progression to a Pomma that accesses 2 longer pistes. The one surprise is how few people were up there. The terrain is a match to many of the much better known ski fields. So if you prefer to avoid crowds and waiting on lift queues this is perfect. You also get superb views right over to Mount Cook out on the East trail. In addition,, they had a deal of 2 for 1 lift pass, so it doesn't hurt the pocket! Will definitely be back.
