As a pro snowboarder, Wyatt Caldwell won competitions all over the world. But you won’t find him in the pipe these days. “I’m 29,” the Sun Valley native says. “I’m leaving that scene to the youngsters.” Today, the Eddie Bauer First Ascent–sponsored athlete spends most of his time in the Idaho backcountry. During the winter, Caldwell works for Smith Optics as an athlete, contributing photographer, guide, and jack-of-all-trades at the company’s cat-skiing outfit. He also makes movies, riding and shooting in remote locations for Yes snowboards and spreading the good word about Sun Valley Resort, where he moonlights as an ambassador.
