Drew first started skiing at six years old when he was encouraged by his first coach and Grade 5 school teacher, Bob Vanderwater, to join the Jackrabbit Ski League. As a youngster, he loved skiing from the start. The opportunities to travel with friends and family, as well as play outside in the snow kept him involved over the years. Today, racing against the best in the world is what Goldsack loves most about the sport.

The 2003-04 season was a major step forward in hisĀ  pursuit of excellence as he took his first steps on the World Cup circuit. He continued to build on that experience during the 2004-05 season with a career best finish placing 21st at the Nordic World Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany and returned to the World Cup circuit. Goldsack impressed during his Olympic debut in 2006, recording a strong 31st-place sprint result. He took another major leap up the ladder of success at the 2007 Nordic World Championships in Sapporo, Japan finishing 6th in the team sprint event. The highlight of his 2007-08 season was a 12th place finish in the sprint at the Canmore World Cup.

After his athletic career, he plans to resume his schooling and is looking at a career in the film industry or investment banking. In his free time, he enjoys actively resting, alpine skiing (hucking in the terrain park), alpine touring, fishing, working on his car and motorcycle, sport climbing, windsurfing, playing squash, badminton and soccer.
