Challenged Athletes of West Virginia has been providing adaptive sports opportunities to children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities since 1996. From humble beginnings we have grown to become a leader in the Mid-Atlantic Region. CAWV provides equipment and instruction for adaptive alpine skiing and snowboarding, education and training opportunities for professional and volunteer staff, equipment and support for handcycling, adaptive bicycling, whitewater rafting, camping and other outdoor opportunities.
CAWV is a 501-C-3 non-profit organization and a chapter of Disabled Sports USA. Our headquarters and offices are located atop Cheat Mountain, at Snowshoe Mountain Resort, in the beautiful Allegheny Highlands of Pocahontas County, West Virginia. (Less than a day’s travel from the major population centers of the Mid-Atlantic.)
