25-year old Charlotte van Gils is anything but conventional. She went on her first winter sports holiday (in Austria) when she was 11. Instead of skiing like the rest of her family and most kids, she decided to go snowboarding. For the first few years she only snowboarded during these annual trips to the snow; school and gymnastics were what her life centred on. However, as soon as Charlotte got air and pulled her first tricks indoors, she was sold. Pretty soon, snowboarding completely dominated her life and Breckenridge in the USA was the place for her to fully develop herself so she could take part in international contests. Nowadays, Charlotte can compete with the best female snowboarders in the world and has her sights set on the Olympic Games in Socchi
