Amber Stackhouse is a Renaissance woman whose list of talents goes far beyond her skills on a snowboard. She’s been a sponsored pro rider for a decade now—but she’s also a self-made filmmaker with a keen sense of the creativity and community involved in snowboarding. With that said, Amber’s growing into a new role here at Roxy. Amidst a hectic schedule of shredding her heart out, she’ll also be heading up the filming, production, and direction of the ’09/10 season’s Roxy Snow web videos (she produced and co-directed last season’s Roxy Snow podcasts, too).

Originally from the Northeast wilds of Portland, Maine, Amber first stepped on a snowboard in 1995 and quickly fell in love. Her passion for the shred took her west to Mammoth, where she honed her smooth riding style along with a lethal set of park and powder skills, before moving to her current home of Salt Lake City. Amber was at ground zero when the women’s snowboarding movement exploded in the early 2000s, and sick of seeing the talent around her going undocumented, she decided to do some documenting of her own. In 2004, she co-founded Misschief Films and released two groundbreaking all women’s snowboard movies (As If and Ro Sham Bo), followed by the production of Roxy Snow’s team movie Labor Of Love.

A fiercely loyal friend who is always down for the crew, Amber’s continually on a mission of self-improvement. She spent the ’09 summer in Sweden gaining an in-depth knowledge of film and camerawork to put to use during the winter. “At the moment I’m more interested in capturing and conveying the riders as individuals, as well as their snowboard skills,” she says. “It’s the bigger picture, so to speak.” We can’t wait to see what this talented lady creates, both on snow and on film.
