This versatile ski star moves in different disciplines within the winter sport. Rarely can she be found on the slopes, but all the more in the park and outside. In addition, she has specialized over the years in the structures of adapted winter sports.
After her first training in Sport Management & Entrepreneurship, Caroline went on an adventure and spent three seasons in a row (Canada, Austria and New Zealand) literally tasting the snow. It tasted like more! During her second study, she went looking for winter sports in the Netherlands and she started freestyling. She spent many hours in the park of the indoor halls and trained with the freestyle team Steasy and participated in various competitions.
After completing her second Masters in Sport Policy and Organization, she found work in winter sports. At the NSkiV she has put the structure for the adapted winter sports on the map and thus offered the possibility that everyone with a disability, just like everyone else, can enjoy winter sports. This structure has paid off and many people with physical disabilities have started practicing winter sports, some of which are now even professional.
Organizing and initiating international projects and races, including World Cups, is no stranger to her either. During her employment, she has put many initiatives for adapted winter sports on the market together with other countries and the IPC.
Nowadays she enjoys freeriding to the fullest. She was able to do this fully in Japan and in the surroundings of Kaprun. Whether it is a trip with many altimeters, sleeping in a mountain hut or putting a boat pack, challenging yourself while skiing and discovering beautiful places in the remote nature is for her the most beautiful thing there is.
In 2017 she started her own organization, called: UP Adaptive Sports. UP stands for Unlimited Possibilities and offers a wide range of adaptive skiing or snowboard activities for people who are physically or mentally disabled. She does that in the area of Kaprun, Austria. For more information look at www.upadaptivesports.com
Experiencing winter sports is very high on her priority list and therefore she follows the advice given: “just enjoy!”
