Born and raised in Fernie, British Columbia, Emily grew up minutes away from her local ski-hill. She began skiing at the age of 2 and starting competing in alpine ski racing at the age of 7. She has been a member of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team for 11 years and is currently competing on the World Cup Circuit.
Emily has so far represented Canada at two Olympic games in 2002 and 2006. She is gunning for Gold in Vancouver in 2010.
A true advocate for creating opportunity for children in her community, Emily has created her own charity The Emily Brydon Youth Foundation that encourages and supports children in her area to get involved with sports and the arts.
We love having Emily as an elite ambassador because she is an amazing athlete and an equally amazing person.
