Megs Pischke

Pro Snowboarder. Yogi. Born Activist.

Megs has been snowboarding for over two decades while practicing yoga along the way. She truly feels that the mountains, the surf and yoga have been like old friends through the ups and downs of life and are a grounding force that continues to keep her in check on a daily basis.

From X Games appearances to Warren Miller Film segments and first descents in Greenland, Megan continues to feel blessed for her lengthy snowboard career, involvement in the action sports industry and amazing travels. Transitioning from pro-athlete into motherhood, Megan continues to work with her longtime sponsor The North Face in product research, design and development in kids' and adult outerwear.

For more than 16 years, Megan has dedicated herself to Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a non-profit and a cause that means more than just “supporting” to her. Wanting to become more actively involved, Megan partnered with B4BC as a Wellness Ambassador to provide breast cancer survivors with scholarships to her ReTreat Yourself women’s wellness experiences rooted in snowboarding, surfing, and yoga with a complimentary focus on meditation, nutrition and other tools for prevention. 

Ironically, in the Fall of 2012, Megan was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and describes this new part of her journey as “a gift.” Alongside B4BC, Meg's created her own project, Chasing Sunshine. In 2015, Proof partnered with Megs & Chasing Sunshine for a collaboration that benefitted the non-profit organization.
