Adaptive Snowsport Guide
Becoming a DWA volunteer Adaptive Snowsport Guide is a unique experience and a great opportunity to meet lots of likeminded people. We also offer training for Snowsport Guides to teach you skills to help people with disabilities.
At the beginning of each Ski Season DWA run two day training programs to give you the basic skills to help our participants on snow. Throughout the season, once you have some experience and you get the taste for Guiding, we offer specialised clinics and further training opportunities. Some of these programs include Advanced tethering of a Sit Ski, Vision Impaired guiding and 3 and 4 tracking.
If you are a Guide in Victoria, you would be helping out on camps run each weekend from the end of June through to mid-September. Obviously you don’t need to volunteer on every camp, unless you really want to! You leave Melbourne on a Friday night in a provided bus, stay in the mountains until Sunday afternoon, then we drive you back on Sunday night.
If you are a Guide in NSW, the camps run mid-week Monday to Friday from the end of June until mid-September.
We now also offer our Volunteers the chance to train and sit their APSI level 1 certificate, which is recognised worldwide as a credited Snowsports School qualification.
If you’re an intermediate to advanced skier or rider you can join our other Adaptive snowsport guides and help with on snow programs.
If this sounds like the challenge you have been looking for, we would love to hear from you.
