Emily Arthur is a fun and chilled teen Aussie snowboarding powerhouse transitioning from junior to adult competition who has a good chance at representing Australia in the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. She was kind enough to pop in and spend a fun hour talking snowboarding, hot guys, and of course, karaoke. A self proclaimed above average Ham & Cheese toastie maker, one thing is certain, in the world of snowboarding Emily Arthur is way way way above average.

EMILY ARTHUR BIO:

Emily had her first taste of Olympic glory at the Lillehammer 2016 Youth Winter Olympic Games, where she was named as the Opening Ceremony Flag Bearer. The then 16yr old won silver in the snowboard halfpipe in Norway, as well as placing 15th in the snowboard slopestyle.
