Brief Biography:
Calve grew up in Aylmer, Quebec, Canada where skiing, not snowboarding, was her first love. At a young age, Caroline became a Level 3 Canadian Ski Federation ski instructor and coach. At 22, she picked up snowboarding with the goal of becoming an Olympian. Her background in skiing gave her some of the skills she needed to become a world class alpine snowboarder. Calve competed in two World Cups, with a top finish of 10th in Parallel Slalom. A World Cup silver medalist, she has six top-ten finishes on the World Cup circuit and captured 21 Nor-Am medals. In 2010, she achieved her Olympic goal representing Canada in the Vancouver Olympics. At the 2011 World Cup competition in Caressa, Italy, Calve became the first Canadian woman to do so. Calve was named 2009 Athlete of the Year in her home region of Outaouis, Quebec, Canada.

Calve studied kinesiology at university and also completed correspondence studies. She enjoys mountain biking, snowshoeing with her dog, and cross-country skiing. Superstitions? Calve always wears the same socks when racing and always travels with a headlamp. Caroline has an indigenous background of Algonquin heritage and is part of the First Nations Snowboard Team, a group that promotes Canadian aboriginal involvement and success in sport.

“I certainly try to be a role model for aboriginal kids, but also for all little Canadians out there who aspire to great things. With my experience as a person who hasn’t been an athlete for their whole life, it can be a great model to achieve anything you want in your life.”
