If cross-country skiing were a royal family, Sophie Caldwell would likely the Dutchess of Stratton. The 25-year-old granddaughter to John Caldwell, a former Olympian and the author of the first American guide to cross country skiing, Sophie grew up at the Stratton Mountain School, where her father, Sverre served as headmaster before settling in as the program director for the cross country and elite teams.
For her part, Caldwell has been an NCAA podium finisher, a World Cup podium finisher and the top U.S. woman to race in an Olympic games with her sixth place finish in the Sochi freestyle sprint. 2014 and 2015 saw multiple top ten finishes from the dynamic Vermonter, an impressive feat after a fall elbow injury left her without key poling training in the weeks leading to the start of the season. “I’m focused on results across both sprinting and distance races,” Caldwell said during the season.
