Information

From the Lake Dobson car park walk to the ski field via either the Urquart walking track or the Jeep trail, this takes approx. 30-45 mins. This is not a commercial ski field but operated by volunteers of the ski clubs with rope tows operating to take skiers up the slopes. In order to use the tows, a Tow Belt is required. Tow belts are hired on the mountain and supplied as part of your ticket price. The tows are accessed from the Lake Dobson car park via a scenic 30-45 minute uphill walk through alpine forest. This can often be skied on the way home. Ski patrollers are on duty whenever the tows are operating. A day shelter at the bottom of the main ski area slope is maintained by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.TOW OPERATING TIMES10am to 4pm on weekends – weather and snow conditions permitting The tows do not currently run during the week The tows generally operate during the school holidays – weather and snow conditions permitting Ski Hire And Food are not available on the mountain Mountain Creek Outdoors in Hobart sell toboggans & snow clothes/accessories.There are numerous cross country skiing possibilities accessed from Mount Mawson including the Rodway Range, the Tarn Shelf and Mount Field West.
