Stockman Sports South Island base for 2017 "Mt Dobson" is so exciting for our team of athletes going forward as we can now offer our athletes training and race preperation for events in the South Island. For those athletes chasing individual races, series points or national titles, they can now travel between our North Island base and our South Island training facility allowing them to be even better prepared. We can't wait for the winter to get started.
Mt Dobson has been owned and operated by the Foote family of Fairlie for the past 38 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. The business is managed by long time ski industry professional, Mike Smith. Mt Dobson is our "alpine dream” and we want to share it with you.
You will see the Foote family and Mike 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.
