"Try things that feel risky, even if you fail or get rejected. It's easy to be paralyzed from the fear of failure, but sometimes you have to put it all out there, on the line."
Caroline started skiing at the age of two. She moved to Utah at age 15 to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a pro skier. Caroline is frequently featured in Powder, Backcountry, or Ski Magazines and in the legendary annual Warren Miller films. She is passionate about the outdoors and when she's not summiting high peaks she can be found, trail running, mountain biking, ridge crumbling, and dreaming up her next human-powered adventure. She is a passionate advocate for the causes that inspire her and works with non-profits such as such as Protect Our Winters, HEAL Utah, Tree Utah and Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation.
Caroline Gleich By The Numbers
I'm passionate about working to protect clean air, clean water and on the fight against climate change. As a skier, I feel so deeply connected to the environment. In the summer, I strive to be a well-rounded mountain athlete. I love road biking, rock climbing, and trail running. To relax, I love going to yoga and painting.
Most Proud Of:
I'm proud of the environmental issues I've worked on - speaking at the Bears Ears hearing, and speaking at hearings about clean air and coal leasing. I hope to inspire the next generation of outdoor adventurers to become environmental activist.
On a personal level, I'm proud of defying the odds - overcoming all the naysayers who told me I wasn't strong, fit or fast enough to climb and ski the mountains of my dreams.
