Caroline Calvé is the veteran of the Canadian Alpine Snowboard Team. Skiing is the first sport she fell in love with as a child and at a young age, she became a certified coach and instructor. At 22, she gave snowboarding a try and decided she would be on the other side and race instead of coaching.
Calvé has been competing full time on the World Cup circuit since 2005. She had a breakthrough 2011 season in Carezza, Italy, becoming the first Canadian to win a women’s PGS World Cup event. Calvé won her second World Cup event in the 2013 season in Moscow, this time in PSL, finishing the 2012-13 season ranked third in the World Cup parallel standings. Calvé is now an Olympian placing 6th in PGS at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.
Even though she is not considered First nation, Algonquin blood runs trough her veins that comes from her father’s side of the family. A big supporter and role model for the First Nation’s Snowboard Team, Calvé is proud of her roots, and vows to help others in the community excel in snowboarding. As a competition ritual Calvé always wears the same socks when racing and travels with a headlamp. Beside being an athlete, Caroline is a part time university student studying kinesiology. When she’s not on the hill, she enjoys mountain biking, snowshoeing with her dog and cross-country skiing.
