Derek Roy


You are the first skier to join the Crack Grease Snowboarding Team, any thoughts or feelings you'd like to share?

I'm stoked! Shredding with snowboarders opens up new doors for me when I'm trying new stuff or coming up with new ideas, so having the opportunity to ride and work with more snowboarders is gonna be great. Also the Crack Grease team knows how to have a blast both on and off the hill, it'll be sick to show em how the two-plankers do it! Git sum.

Describe your dream day of riding. Where, with whom, conditions, apres?

Cat-skiing at Retallack, BC. Endless pow. Then, ending the day with some live music and plenty of drinks, all with the best of the crew.


Why is skiing so fun?

White Powder. Pushing your limits, spending time in the mountains with your best friends. Other cool things that go with skiing: beer (with great head), timber tigers, cascade cougars.

If you could never ski again, could you find love and stoke on a snowboard?

For sure! I actually snowboarded for a few years and still take one out a few days a season. It's all about bein out in the snow with the homies!

Describe your dream park line.

4 or 5 50-70 foot jumps followed by a dozen different, creative, and BIG jibs/rails.

Favorite rider?

Super hard question. Favorite of all time: Glen Plake. Recently: Dane Tudor.

Favorite human?

Derek Roy, centre for the Buffalo Sabers.

If you could be one element from the Periodic Table of Elements, which would you be?

Helium! Kid voices, floating, and explosions. What more could you ask for?

Best job you ever had?

Whitewater Raft Guide, hands down. Every summer I guide on the White Salmon, Klickitat, and Snake Rivers. This will be my 5th year as a guide, and it just keeps getting better and better.

Worst job you ever had?

Taco Bell… I don't wanna talk about it.

Bare knuckle fist fight between Joe Pesci and Danny Devito- who's your money on?

Danny Devito. Perfect height to go for knees and nuts, combined with small-man syndrome.

Have you been in love? Share...

I think I was in love once.
Really? What was her name?
I don't remember.
That's not a good start, but keep going.
She was Brazilian, or Chinese, or something weird. I met her in the bathroom of a Kmart and we make out for hours. Then we parted ways, never to see each other again.
I'm pretty sure that's not love.
Damn it!
