- Who are Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA)?
Disabled Wintersport Australia is a non-profit organisation focused on helping impaired skiers and riders have great on-snow experiences.
DWA memberships are essential to supporting the year-round work DWA do as part of their ‘reducing barriers – increasing access' philosophy. It forms part of their overall vision of finding freedom on snow and ensuring that experiencing snow sports does not cost any more for a person with disability.
Your DWA membership allows DWA to collaborate with partners across government and industry, apply for grants that enable the purchase of essential adaptive equipment such as sit-skis and out-riggers, and build their reputation so that our members have a continuously improving experience at resorts.
It also helps to fund the training and support of DWA volunteer guides, which are at the core of getting DWA members on snow.

Epic Australia Adaptive Pass Holders that require the assistance of a companion or guide to support them on the snow can purchase one Guide/Companion lift ticket per day for a reduced price at all Vail Resorts owned and operated resorts. This ticket can be purchased by contacting our Guest Services team or over the counter, in resort on presentation of your current DWA membership card or Companion Card where a carer is noted or endorsed on the card.
