Our Main Goal at the Dirksen Derby is to bring the local and international Snowboard and Sit-Ski communities together for an incredibly fun and memorable weekend full of fast race times, strong friendships and fond memories.


Our financial mission at Dirksen Derby is to use our proceeds to benefit selected local and national Non-Profits, as well as supporting indiviuals including our long-time friend and inspiration, Tyler Eklund.


Since our first Dirksen Derby event at Mt. Bachelor in 2007, we have had over 4500 competitors and assisted in raising over $275,000 dollars for our friends, our environment and our health.

Financial beneficiaries of the Dirksen Derby have included: Tyler Eklund, Oregon Adaptive Sports, Protect Our Winters, Democracy Engine, The Walker family, and The Ortega family and Central Oregon Avalanche Association. 

The Dirksen Derby is also a proud member of 1% for the Planet.
