Description

Rob's Knob is one of the easier zones to ski in the Lulu Pass area. It consists of a couple open meadows as well as a few tree chutes that are about 35 degrees. These lines are about 400 feet vertical, and can be easily lapped with snowmobiles. Rob's Knob is a great place to hang out with a large group and get some pretty good skiing in too.
