Mt Dobson has been owned and operated by the Foote family of Fairlie for the past 39 years and they have made it their mission to make this Ski Area the friendliest around. The mountain is managed by Bruce Foote with the assistance of father Peter and his two other sons, Allan and Richard.

You will see the Foote family out and about on the mountain ensuring everybody is enjoying their day out and are happy to help or just have a chat!!

Each winter we employ a fantastic team from New Zealand and around the world.
