Four-time Olympian, Mammoth Mountain's Stacey Cook opened the 2015 season with a bang when Lindsey Vonn (1st), Cook (2nd) and Julia Mancuso (3rd) snagged the first-ever historic U.S. podium sweep in the Lake Louise downhill. During the 2016 season, Cook grabbed a fifth-place finish on her favorite track in Lake Louise, along with six top 15 finishes and ten top 20 finishes. In 2018, she crashed in Garmisch just before the Olympics and though she was named to her fourth Olympic Team, she was unable to compete. She is graduating from university in the summer of 2018 and looks forward to her next big adventure. 

Cook started skiing at age four with her father at various Lake Tahoe ski areas and raced in the low-key Buddy Werner League events run by Truckee's rec department. "When I was about 10, I got a scholarship to the Northstar [racing] program and I won the first race. That's when I got serious," she said. When she wanted to try downhill but the Tahoe coaches resisted, she shifted to the Mammoth Mountain racing program, a couple of hours south, and started becoming more speed oriented.

Cook digs summer training in Mammoth because of the quality road and mountain biking as well as hiking that fits nicely into her personalized program. Another perk is being at home, and that feeling only comes in Mammoth. As a Cali resident, she's become pretty good friends with former Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. This friendship originated as a result of filming a California Tourism commercial, though she's built her relationship with Schwarzenegger through her involvement with the After-School All-Stars program, which aims to provide comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life. She and good friend, Kelly Clark, the greatest women’s halfpipe snowboarder of all time, have a goal of bringing the ski and snowboard worlds more together. If anyone can do it, it’s them.
