Women of Skiing: 10 Reasons We Love Caroline Gleich

Always looking for new opportunities, Caroline has a small pop up shop called C Wild located inside of Unhinged in Sugarhouse, Salt Lake City. She stocks it with merchandise she finds during her travels. Like the beanie she's wearing here which was picked up during a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, from the Gold Mine, a classic ski thrift shop. - ©Liam Doran

Caroline's more than a pretty face. Mixing her passion with fashion, she's the type of woman who gets excited about finding the perfect hat with a pom pom on top, the pop of color on a zipper pull and the warm feeling of fuzzy winter boots. - ©Liam Doran

When Caroline's out on the mountain she's always testing new gear. Like this one-piece base layer from Patagonia. After trying it out she will sometimes work with designers on tweaks that can be made. - ©Liam Doran

If you ski in Utah there's a chance you will run into Caroline. Big powder days find her up early, skinning up the mountain and enjoying turns as the sky begins to warm up. Like many Utah backcountry skiers, Caroline is active when it comes to being prepared for avalanches. Her newest addition, an ABS pack, is just one way Caroline sets herself up for success. She also helps the Utah Avalanche center by working as an athlete instructor spreading life-saving tips and training.  - ©Liam Doran
