This should work just fine.  What makes you think it doesn't work?
I'm not even sure why you'd need to disable culling though as the
skybox/skydome's bouding volume should be on screen and not culled any

Yes this is odd.   You must be doing something odd with your geometry
for it behave in the way you are describing.  You should need to
modify the bounding box and shouldn't need to disable culling.
