DWA is an organisation with a national perspective taking responsibility for development of disability winter sport in Australia. Through building the capability and capacity of a National Sport System, including accountability at the national level, we provide members with technically sound sports programs, policies and service. DWA’s Resort Services Program at Mt Hotham offers the support for both members and resort stakeholders around adaptive snowsports and disability. As a DWA member you can request and book adaptive equipment and request a volunteer adaptive snowsport guide (if available). Mt Hotham has a DWA Resort Services Coordinator who is a central point of contact for information related to disability services specific to Mt Hotham for: – Resort stakeholders, accommodation providers, snowsport schools, hospitality, lift companies – People with a disability, their families and friends who are wanting to come to the resort – DWA volunteers
