Thankyou so much for choosing us to host your school group!

We Offer:

  • Great beginner and intermediate ski slopes
  • Fully qualified and fun snow school instructors
  • FOC (free of charge) lift pass for person in charge
  • A safe way to enjoy snow sports

Mount Dobson has the largest learners/intermediate area in NZ with the longest novice lift, making it ideal for beginners to enjoy learning in a pleasant relaxed environment with plenty of room and few crowds. Our Ophua Saddle chair lift and Fairlie Ridge t-bar  will provide the more experienced skiers and boarders plenty of variety and challenge.

We welcome your school to our slopes and will do all we can to ensure your students and organisers have a safe and happy day at Mount Dobson. On arrival, we will greet you and give you information regarding the location of various facilities and meeting places. It is essential that the teacher and adult assistants accompany the students through the ski rental process. This will help the students who may be unfamiliar with the fitting of ski gear and will speed the process up for the group.

The Mount Dobson team is continually striving to improve the school programme. We consider the months of July, August and September an excellent opportunity to take advantage of this school skiing programme. Please be flexible in planning your day with us as unfortunately we can not dictate the weather on the day.

Bookings are essential and we advise early bookings to secure your preferred dates.

Bookings can be made by contacting the Mount Dobson office. Email: To avoid delay in the fitting of ski equipment on the day,  email to us all standard boot sizes of your students at least 2 days prior to your ski trip, so that we can have the equipment ready upon your arrival.
