2022 U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Ashley Caldwell from Ashburn, Virginia, is an exceptional aerial skier. She now resides in Park City, Utah, and has made history as the only female to land "The Daddy," a quadruple-twisting triple backflip. Along with this achievement, she also holds a World Record for the hardest acrobatic trick ever landed by a female. With four Olympic Games since 2010 and a World Cup Championship title in 2016, Ashley has made some remarkable achievements and has positioned herself as one of the best aerialists in the world. Ironically enough, Ashley has a strong disliking for the cold, but her resentment has not seemed to hold her back. Ashley was part of the Elite Aerial Club prior to joining the Stifel U.S. Freestyle Ski Team and can be caught on the trails mountain biking in her free time.
"Being athletic, healthy, and competitive is not gender exclusive. I want to be the best-I don't care if I am a boy or a girl."
