She is also a committed environmentalist and owner of the Utah retail shop “C Wild.”
Her last name is pronounced “Glike,” and it rhymes with “like.” As she only stands 5 feet tall, it's no surprise her nickname is Lil’ C. She has 3 brothers, 2 half sisters and dozens of cousins. She wrote on Twitter: “Pro skier, artist, designer, gardener, outdoor adventurer, on camera personality.”

Her favorite quote is “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

As for skiing and her height, Caroline Gleich said, “Being five feet tall…has many drawbacks like going to the grocery store, you have to ask somebody to help you to get stuff off the top shelf, but when it comes to powder snow skiing, [it] definitely has some advantages.”
She also worked as a coach for kid’s jumping. “I teach them how to hit ramps and cliffs, and back country booters and terrain park jumps, halfpipe.”
Caroline Gleich said, “Nothing cheers me up like working on an art project or crocheting a beanie. I especially like splatter paint for stress relief.”
In the summer, she competes in stand-up paddle boarding. She also loves to surf, hike, climb, and backpack. “I am also passionate about my organic fruit and vegetable garden, and I grow a lot of my own summer produce.” Caroline Gleich currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah and is single.
