A member of one of the East Coast’s premier nordic families, Vermont native Sophie Caldwell joins the U.S. Ski Team a year after graduating from Dartmouth College.
In 2013 she proved she belonged on the highest international stage, skiing in her first World Cup events and placing as high as 14th against the best skiers in the world. Caldwell was also invited to her first World Championships, where she qualified for the sprint final and then finished in the top-20.
In her senior year at Dartmouth, Caldwell podiumed twice at NCAA Championships, earning her All-America honors two times over (giving her five for her career). She has twice finished as runner-up at U.S. Championships and finished ninth in the classic sprint at the U23 World Championships.
Caldwell joins the U.S. Team in an Olympic year, giving her a shot to make the squad that will be heading to Sochi.
The highlight of my season was racing the World Championships classic sprint, where I ended up 20th. It was an amazing experience and exciting to be a part of Team USA. I'm looking forward to getting some more international experience next year and am thrilled to be joining such a strong team!
