In 2017 Drew Peterson set out on a road trip with the goal of skiing the highest peaks in the lower 48's westernmost states. Drew saw the trip as a means to use skiing to really see the American West, a place he had grown up in his entire life.
The trip took him from California's Mt. Whitney to Arizona's Humphrey's Peak to the iconic Mt. Rainier high up in Washington's Cascade mountains. In today's climate of pushing the limits, often too far, Drew learned one of life's most important lessons; when to turn away. His trip, like most, had its peaks and valleys, injuries and setbacks, but it was the journey itself rather than the peaks that made this trip so special.
