Drew’s fondness for the mountains is rooted in Vail, Colorado, where he grew up. He first came to Idaho in 2007 while earning a degree in geography from the University of Denver and started working for Sun Valley Heli Ski in 2012. In addition to working for SVHS, he guides climbing and skiing around the world as an independent IFMGA Mountain Guide, a certification he earned in 2015. After the mid winter skiing in Idaho, Drew heads to Iceland to guide heli skiing, followed by ski touring trips to Norway, France, Switzerland and Italy. The summers find Drew living in Stanley, Idaho with his wife Erika, where he guides rock climbing on the beautiful granite of the Sawtooth Mountains. When he’s not working, Drew is probably traveling the world or exploring the local mountains on his “real good alpine benders.”
