Meet Caroline Lalive

Hello from Steamboat Springs, Colorado! My name is Caroline Lalive and I am looking forward to sharing my adventures, experiences and tips with you during my days here in "The Boat." After retiring from 13 years on the Women's US Ski Team and 3 Olympic Games, I continue to seek out fun filled adventures. What better place than in my own backyard?

Currently, I co-host the Women's Ski Clinics with fellow Olympian Deb Armstrong throughout the winter at Steamboat.

Tune in to my blog and get a firsthand view of the Yampa Valley, tips on Steamboat's legendary Champagne Powder® snow and arcing turns, and everything that is winter in Ski Town, U.S.A.® My zest for life and thrill for speed hasn't slowed and I can't wait to share some more exciting moments with all of you! See you on the Slopes.
