REDUCING BARRIERS – INCREASING ACCESS

The 2024 Epic Australia Adaptive Pass is on sale now.

We're committed to equally welcoming everyone to our resorts and communities, no matter their ability.

As part of our Be Inclusive value and in partnership with Disabled Wintersport Australia, the Epic Australia Adaptive Pass is a step towards creating a more equal and inclusive environment at our resorts. The 2024 Epic Australia Adaptive Pass begins to address some of the barriers for people with impairments when skiing and riding with lower cost lift access so they can discover the magic of our Australian, North American and European resorts and develop their on-snow abilities.

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DISABLED WINTERSPORT AUSTRALIA

We're proud to partner with Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA) to help achieve equality of opportunity for people with all abilities to experience our resorts and participate in the winter sport of their choice.

Disabled Wintersport Australia is a non-profit organisation focused on helping impaired skiers and riders have great on-snow experiences. From providing access to adaptive equipment to partnering riders with trained and experienced guides, DWA creates a safe and energetic environment to support impaired riders on the snow.

All ‘Individual’ DWA members and Companion Card holders will be eligible for the Epic Australia Adaptive Pass and its benefits. We highly recommend impaired skiers and riders joining DWA to ensure your on-snow success.
