Yes, we’re going there – but only because we know you’re interested! To get you excited for 2013/2014 racing season, we asked the skiers you’ll be reading most about from the U.S. and Canadian national teams to tell us seven things about themselves that most people don’t know. To top off the randomness, we also asked a couple questions related to skiing (well, sort of) and the life of a pro athlete.

If I’m struggling in a race or a workout, a lot of the time I’ll say … “Sophie, get your butt up that hill right now.” But it’s not usually put that nicely. — Sophie Caldwell, U.S. Ski Team member

Athlete: Sophie Caldwell

Team: U.S. Ski Team (first season); Stratton Mountain School T2 Team

Age: 23

Hometown: Peru, Vermont

7 Things:

  1. I love jelly beans
  2. I’m scared of cold water
  3. I went for my first ski when I was 10 months old!
  4. My sister and brother are twins
  5. I grew up with two dalmatians named Daisy and Douglas. They were around my age, so I thought I was a dog for the first couple years of my life.
  6. I was bald until I was 2!
  7. The only food I don’t like (to date) is olives.

Bonus Round:

  • First races of the season? The FIS sprint in Beitostølen, Norway!
  • Go-to mantra or motto: If I’m struggling in a race or a workout, a lot of the time I’ll say something along the lines of, “Sophie, get your butt up that hill right now.” But it’s not usually put that nicely. I don’t really swear out loud, but sometimes self-talk swearing can go a long way!
  • What do you miss most while on the road (besides family and friends)? Double beds and knowing what everything in a grocery store is
  • Best part about being a pro athlete: Travel!
  • 3 travel essentials: Sleepy Bunny (my stuffed animal), sweatpants, liquid iron (gross)
  • Go-to travel meal or food: Eggs in the basket!
  • Song that you could listen to non-stop: “Can’t Go Home” – Good Old War
  • Song you wouldn’t mind never hearing again: “Work B****” by Britney Spears
