A Winter Wonderland

Snow fun for everyone! With 4 lifts and 400+ acres of varied, uncrowded terrain, every age and stage can ski or ride at Mt Dobson. Spectacular views from the top of Lake Tekapo, Mt Cook and beyond will make you feel alive. And the Family friendly facilities, easy road access, and relaxed atmosphere make Mt Dobson an alpine experience unlike any other.

Getting There

The smooth gravel road is well-maintained and 15km long, so it’s suitable for cars, buses and motorhomes. Just make sure you carry snow chains and fit them when advised.

The Foote Rest Café

With a range of fresh food and drinks available all day, our cafe is the perfect spot to relax, recharge and take in the view. Kickstart your day with a barista-made  Coffee. Grab one of the famous Fairlie Bakehouse pies for lunch. And get a snack for the drive down the mountain. Too easy.
