Emma Rogers | Gap Who/what inspired you to start?
I had been skiing since I was 5yrs old and remember one family holiday seeing someone on a snowboard and thought that looks different I want to give that a go. So with my hard boots, one piece and sunnies I was ready for my lesson, an hour later and I was ready to get back on my ski's.
10yrs later I decided to give it a second chance and have never looked back.

Emma on guitarrrr What was your favourite trip and why?
There's been lots of fun little trips, but the one that stands out would be the one to Saint Lary about 4yrs ago with Kathy and Gilly.
