Keely Cashman is a 2022 Olympian and a strong skier of all disciplines, currently focused on speed with our women’s Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team. Cashman’s top World Cup results include a 10th place in the Val d’Isere super-G in 2020 and a 16th in the Val d’Isere downhill.
After a successful two-year stint with the National Training Group, Cashman moved up the ranks to the D Team for the 2018 season. In 2017, she was only a first-year FIS athlete, but her solid fundamentals, balance and fast skiing turned heads. She snagged top three in her birth year in the first two European FIS races of the season. In 2014, Cashman competed as the only U16 American woman to participate in the 2nd annual Longines Future Ski Champions event and in 2016 competed in the Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.
When she's not crushing on the slopes, she serves as a barista at her family’s coffee shop, plays the guitar and ukulele and fishes, paddle boards, hunts, cooks, rides dirt bikes.
"It’s always been a huge goal of mine (to win a U.S. title). I remember when nationals came to Squaw when I was a U14, and I remember watching everyone, and now to be standing on top of the podium really means a lot. It’s a good stepping stone..."
