When Caite Zeliff moved to Jackson, she had one thing on her mind: pursuing her dream of becoming a professional freeride skier. Growing up in a ski town in New Hampshire (as a child of a single mother nonetheless) gave her a very clear look into the world of ski racing. But as we all know, Jackson Hole isn’t really about bashing gates and lycra suits – it’s about pushing the limits of freeride skiing in some of the burliest terrain around.
Good thing for Caite, she quickly realized she had a knack for that kind of skiing too, and quietly started making a name for herself in the resort and in the backcountry. That all went into hyperdrive when she dropped into Corbet’s Couloir during the inaugural Kings and Queens of Corbet’s event and took home first prize, catapulting her career to new heights and cementing her place in the community of professional skiers. This year, she took yet another leap and dedicated much of her season to filming with TGR for Make Believe, and let’s just say we’ll let her skiing do the talking – it’s chock of full classic lines like the infamous Cave Air, Gothic Couloir, and all the secret stashes in between.
