Desiree Melancon

A dominating force in women’s snowboarding, this SoCal native has established herself as a force in the streets. She brings confidence and personality to her prolific video parts including her most recent segment in Think Thank Methods Of Prediction, which earned her Video Part Of The Year. Desiree’s style is a hard and fast approach to rails, wallrides and massive gaps, which has earned her praise from fellow riders and fans year after year. Her creativity shines through in both her riding footage and in her other artistic passions—drawing and painting.

This season she embarked on a multi-year multimedia journey dubbed @UnitedSlopesOfAmerica traveling in her DIY camper with the goal of riding every ski resort in the US and documenting the experience along the way. She has already ticked off resorts across Tahoe and the Northwest, and this upcoming season she’s gunning for resorts across the Midwest.
