Caite Zeliff grew up in a ski town but she wasn’t a skier. She was an only child to a single mom; she didn’t have the easy life of most of my guests.  She found skiing through a school program, found her way into ski racing, and then worked her ass off.  She earned scholarships to elite high schools, came close to the US Ski Team,  raced in college briefly, got hurt, and gave up on racing forever.  With that identity in the past, she’s carved out a path in Jackson Hole that has her filming with TGR and Warren Miller.  It's a great story.
