Emily Smith

What is your favourite on-the-go snack?

Crackers & cheese! (And sometimes.. pickles!).

Where is your Hometown?

Elora, Ontario – a teeny tiny little spec on the map, if you scroll in far enough.

What is your go-to vice to clear your head?

Hanging out in the trees (of course) and also, singing and playing guitar.

What's something on the bucket list that you haven't checked off the list yet?

Another coastal adventure road trip – I usually do one every year, from BC to California… stay tuned!

What does Human Powered Adventures mean to you?

My body can take me incredible places. At the end of the day, you don’t need much, just your legs and a positive mind to bring you somewhere new.

What is your Primary Occupation?

Social Media for Tourism Whistler (@GoWhistler)

Who Inspires You & 1 Reason Why?

Each of my good friends inspires me. Every single person I spend time with has a sparkle for life and something they’re passionate about, which inspires me to continue to be passionate too.

One thing you can't leave home without?

My phone. Whoops - honesty.

Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

Yikes. Hard question. Probably too hot as long as there’s some water close by!

Why Westcomb?

Because it’s grassroots. It’s Canadian. It’s based on feedback, innovation and creating great gear for people to have even greater adventures.

What is your go-to piece of Westcomb gear?

The Copa Jacket in (love/pink red)! It keeps me dry and visible – I LOVE Westcomb’s colours! Not to mention it’s comfortable and versatile. I take it everywhere with me. 

Thanks Emily!
