Drew Petersen is a passionate skier, lover of the mountains, and eater of burritos. Originally from Silverthorne, Colorado, Drew now calls the Wasatch Mountains of Utah home. He enjoys all aspects of skiing, from deep powder and multi-day missions in the backcountry, all the way to ripping hard pack right up until last chair. Year-round, the mountains are where Drew is most at home, scoring turns in the winter and running in the summer.
“I’ve spent my whole life in the mountains, and ever since a young age, I have passionately cared about and have been learning about the realities of climate change. More recently, I realized that 20, 30, 50 years from now, when I look back, I want to know that I did something—even if it is just using my voice. We all have a voice, and that’s why I am joining POW, because I believe that POW’s unified efforts are the best chance at rallying the power of our communities and the outdoor industry to create positive change for the future.”
