Visitor Reviews of Mount Dobson

Chris Thompson from Australia writes:

I visited Dobson in July 2005 and had an excellent time! Despite being early in the season and the season itself not being a very strong one what we found at Dobson was beautiful snow and very friendly staff. While other resorts in the area had very icy conditions Dobson had soft powder which was very well mantained. Not all runs were open but the ones that were had excellent snow on than deep powder could be found off-piste. In my experience Dobson is the best in the area and my one regret was that we didn't travel later in the season and enjoy more snow, nonethelss the way Dobson maintained the snow they had has raised the bar for any resort I visit in the future.
