A Wish Come True! Pushing The Limits Of Disabled Skiing With Make-A-Wish Australia

Posted on 14 Sep, 2023 in On the Slopes

On Tuesday, we teamed up with Make-A-Wish Australia & Disabled Wintersports Australia to make a wish come true. 14-year-old Daniel is adrenaline-obsessed and wished to visit Thredbo to push the limits of disabled skiing… Mission accomplished!

To make the day even more special, Paralympian Shannon Dallas was on board to be Dan’s ‘stoke buddy’ for the day as well as the amazing crew from DWA & Thredbo Ski Instructor Lachlan McMahon who is specially trained in adaptive ski instructing. In Daniel’s own words, “That was awesome. My confidence has grown immensely. I 100% want to do this again!”

We’re honoured that Daniel chose to visit Thredbo for his special wish! We have a feeling that this is only the start for his journey on the snow… Make sure to check out the full video above!

Thredbo sits on the traditional land of the Monero – Ngarigo people who have looked after this land, water and community for over 60,000 years. We thank them for all they have done and continue to do to look after their country, a special place which we all love and respect.
