Why is the Dobson Club special?
It draws members from a huge area some of whom are supported by the club and with dedicated parents urging them on reach national and international honour and recognition. This club has an events ability that you usually pay for at a commercial field …we’re good at it and have the equipment to keep it that way as long as members are keen to pitch in a little.
Club funds heavily support this keen group of capable 8-16 year old skiers and boarders .Student club members enroll early in the season at the ski instructors hut. For 2 hours each Sunday. Parents pay a small daily subsidy ($12 approx.) and students are expected to commit to it like any other sport would expect. To get so much quality tuition for so little cost is a rare commodity today- so enjoy.
