We are excited to announce the addition of Charlotte Van Gils to the Vans Europe Snow Team.

Charlotte has been making waves moving up the ranks at major slope style events throughout the world with consistent top 10 results and a podium placement at the New Zealand Open.

For decades Vans has encouraged independent thinking and style and Charlotte’s unconventional path from the flatlands of the Netherlands to the slopes of  Breckenridge, Colorado is the perfect example of living an authentic life.

Charlotte discovered snowboarding at the age of 11 during a holiday trip to Austria.
After many years of riding one week per season she started riding at the local indoor snow domes. The first time she caught air on a jump, she was hooked.

She moved to Breckenridge in 2007 and currently spends her seasons traveling to TTR events throughout the world.

“Charlotte Van Gils was the perfect addition to our outerwear and boot team. She has a very positive attitude and a fearless yet calculated approach to her snowboarding.
Make sure to remember her name,” says Thomas Eberharter, Vans EMEA Snow Team Manager.

In addition to Vans, Charlotte is sponsored by K2 and Electric.

Vans supports and promotes snowboarding and snowboarders through a full line of snowboard boots and outerwear and events such as the legendary Wängl Tängl, sponsorship of the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen and by supporting a talented group of riders on the European Vans Snow team including Wolle Nyvelt, Lauri Podladtchikov, Cheryl Maas, Tyler Chorlton, Tobi Strauss, Arthur Longo, Markus Keller David Bertschinger Karg and Aimee Fuller.
