Wyatt Caldwell has been entering competitions since 1995 at the tender age of 12, and ever since then he been keeping it “clean and smooth.” Being from Sun Valley, Idaho Wyatt grew up in a hotbed of snowboarding activity. However, as he progressed in the sport he was forced to move closer to the center of the snowboarding universe and subsequently ended up residing in Salt Lake City, Utah.
While most professional athletes concentrate solely on pursuing their dreams of climbing to the top of their sport, Wyatt continued to pursue a college education by taking correspondence courses through University Nevada-Reno as well becoming the best in his sport. Wyatt pursues higher education because he sees the big picture and knows the education will never hurt his career only help him pursue bigger and better things!

One of his highlights was performing for team USA in “The Battle” in Falun, Sweden in front of the king and queen and over 10,000 spectators. The contests Wyatt competes in are mostly invite only competitions forcing Wyatt to keep the bar high and continually progress.
