Born in New York City Compton learned to ski on weekend trips to Vermont with her family. They moved to Vermont when she was nine and Caitlin became active in many sports including Alpine ski racing. She started cross-country running in high school and made the switch from Alpine to Nordic skiing during her sophomore year. She attended Northern Michigan University on multiple sport scholarships and was an All American in both cross-country running and Nordic skiing several times.
Compton currently lives and trains in Minneapolis enjoying the best of both worlds in a city with an amazing park system that allows outstanding training in both summer and winter. She is a member of the Central Cross Country Ski Team (CXC) and an athlete on the roster of In the Arena. Her goals this season are to qualify for the 2009 Whistler XC World Cup and to race at the 2009 Nordic World Championships in Liberec, Czech Republic.
