Nothing about Marie-France Roy’s life is ordinary. She has made sure of that. It isn’t different in the sense of extravagance, but rather in how she is living on her terms (Marie built her own house as you will see in the video). Quality of Life is a glimpse into the philosophy of someone that refuses to settle for the societal norms of happiness or success. For Marie, life is about experiencing each moment, whether that be snowboarding, protecting the environment, skating, surfing, sustainable building, or simply being in the natural world.


MFR inspires me in so many ways. Always has since being my neighbour over 10 years ago in Whistler. She is a beautiful soul and an incredible rider.



Film by Snowboard Magazine, presented by Lifeproof.

Director / Editor / Cinematographer: Liam Gallagher


Check out more videos of Marie-France in her SIDETRACKED segment for the up-and-coming Full Moon Film, as well as her backcountry edit from 2014 that pretty much blew away the snowboard industry.
