Born in Hemel Hempstead, Bankes moved to the southern alps of France with her family when she was four years old, and grew up in the mountains competing in different sports, skiing, snowboarding and sailing.
She started racing internationally in snowboarding for France when she was 15, representing them at the Olympics in Sochi and Pyoenchang, where she finished 7th.
In November 2018 she changed licences to compete for Great Britain, flying the Union Jack in Beijing in 2022. After a lot of hard work, in 2021 Charlotte became World Snowboard Cross Champion in Idrefjäll, Sweden and won the Crystal Globe in 2021-22 and 2022-23.
She has continued her dominance, continually smashing into first place spots, becoming the 2023 Team Event World Champion after an impressive performance with Huw Nightingale in Bakuriani. Charlotte has every expectation of maintaining her current fantastic form to stay at the top of the table.
