Brief Biography:
Raised in rural Aleknagit, Alaska, 500 miles from the nearest ski lift, Callan Chythlook Sifsof learned to snowboard on the nearby hills with her brother. When her family moved to Girwood, Alaska, she began formal training at Alyeska Resort. Callan's love of free-riding led her to snowboardcross where she began her racing career. By 2006 she earned a place on the United States Snowboard Team based on outstanding results at World Junior Championships. In her first World Cup competition in Japan, Callan landed on the podium with a bronze medal. She ended the season as the U.S. National Champion and was also named the Junior National Champion. Despite an injury in 2009, Callan trained for the World Cup in 2010 and was the first Native Alaskan named to the U.S. Olympic Team. She competed in snowboardcross in the Vancouver Olympics.
