AFTER blowing out a knee in a horrific accident in Mt Hotham’s backcountry in 2012 Drew Jolowicz didn’t know if he would ski again.
But after multiple surgeries and 18 months of rehab Jolowicz took to the slopes again and now two years later is one of Hotham’s ambassadors.
While images of Jolowicz skiing have been used by Hotham marketing in the past he is now officially one of the ‘faces of the mountain’, joining Olympians Alex ‘Chumpy’ Pullen, Greta Small and Katya Crema as a resort ambassador.
“Growing up in Bright and skiing at Hotham all my life it’s nice to be given that tag and represent the mountain,” Jolowicz said.
“To be included alongside the other three ambassadors is pretty cool too, especially when I didn’t know if I would ski again after landing a jump awkwardly and blowing my knee to pieces in 2012.
“That was on the Drift Cliffs which is outside the resort boundaries and we were actually doing a photo shoot at the time.
