For Drew DeWolf, being born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, it was inevitable he would become part of the mountain culture. “When I was three-years-old, my father taught me how to ski, but it was aligned in the cosmos for me to snowboard, and I haven’t stopped since,” he explained. Learning to splitboard six years ago has allowed Drew to explore even further into the expansive Montana terrain. Today, he splits his time riding in the backcountry, pioneering first descents working towards qualifying for the Swatch Freeride World Tour (FWT). For 16/17 he plans to compete in all 6 FWQ events in North America. Drew is always pushing himself further saying,“I am continuously driven by and passionate about deep snow, big lines, and good people.”

Q & A

My most epic splitboard adventure was the first decent of Dark Moon couloir on Spirit Mountain. At 12,283 feet, Spirit Mountain is one of the highest peaks in Montana. Dark Moon tops out at 55 degrees and falls 1,200 feet directly from the summit. It doglegs sharply at the bottom leaving you completely exposed over 500 feet of cliffs. We traveled 20+ miles in under 12 hours accomplish this goal!

Hans Saari and Tom Burt have had the biggest influences on my backcountry riding.

The accomplishments of other mountaineers.

Spark R&D gear always performs and has never failed me. They compromise nothing in building great gear for the backcountry traveler.
