It is bad news indeed.
Was lucky enough to have slashed a few lines with him.

Thanks Wade.

Condolences to his family.

My heartfelt condolences to the Galloway family and friends.

Having never personally met Wade, only being in the same room a few times, I will say that he was a memorable individual and his passion for riding was contagious. His efforts are and will be appreciated and celebrated by many.

Wow, this really sucks.... I got a chance to meet Wade at the first Baker splitfest. We rode, drank beers and heckled the splitters at the raffle. He was an inspiration for us to start an event in tahoe. What was it? 5000 feet a day he would hike? Glad to have shared turns with ya Wade! RIP

Sad, sad news. I only got to ride with Wade once. He invited me to Waterton after the road had been closed a few days. We got there early afternoon after they had opened it up and dropped in for our last run at 8:00 P.M.! He definitely had passion and stoke for the sport and will be missed. Rest in Peace Wade.

I just can't believe it. Love and prayers to his family and friends. I had the privilege of meeting Wade at the last Scrubfest a few years back and it was awesome to meet up and ride with him in Revelstoke this year for splitfest. Such a huge loss to our small community. We miss you bro.

Wade, you will be missed. I am truly bummed to never have laid down a track with you, up or down. My heart felt condolences to your family and the community around you. Until we eat powder together in heaven, RIP.


Unbelievable :nononno:

I used to read Wade's blog every day while I was saving to get my first split. The old posts and the new, again and again. Finally meeting him at the Canuck splitfest a few years ago he turned out to be one of the nicest guys around. A guy who put in the big days in the mountains and had an ego that was non-existant. A true lover of the outdoors, the more you found out about him, the more you wanted to know him and the more you respected what he did. For the city, for the skate community, for the split community and for the avalanche association with the awareness he promoted. What a loss for the Canadian community and the splitboard community in general.

My thoughts are with his family in this unimaginable time.

So, let’s skip the narrative on this event wrap up and focus on what really matters. We play in the mountains because we enjoy it. We give back because it feels good, and we seek the company of other like minded individuals because, well, mostly because breaking trail is really, really hard work when it snows a lot. There are no greater friendships than those forged on a skin track.

Thank you.

Thank YOU Wade. You're a good man and we'll miss you.
Love and Strength to your family
