2013_05_12_HDSHOT_C_Calve-2_1340pxCaroline Calvé is the veteran of the Canadian women’s alpine snowboard team who was initially fuelled by the dream of competing at the Olympic Games. At Sochi 2014 she finished sixth in the parallel giant slalom (PGS) and 26th in the Olympic debut of the parallel slalom.

Calvé has been competing full time on the World Cup circuit since the 2005-06 season. After finishing 20th in the parallel giant slalom (PGS) in her Olympic debut at Vancouver 2010, Calvé had an international breakthrough in December 2011 when she won gold in the World Cup PGS event at Carezza, Italy. She was the first female Canadian alpine snowboarder to win a World Cup. She followed up with a silver medal at that same venue in December 2012.  That was part of a career-best season for Calvé. She won her second World Cup event, parallel slalom in Moscow in February 2013, en route to finishing the 2012-13 season ranked third in the World Cup parallel standings.
