About Stacey Cook
Four-time Olympian, Mammoth Mountain's Stacey 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. From there the rest is history.
OFF THE SNOW
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 California resident, she's become pretty good friends with former Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. This friendship originated as a result of filming a California Tourism commerical, 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.
CHIX ON STIX
Chix on Stix, began in 2012 when Stacey approached her home mountain, Mammoth, with an idea for a women’s camp. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity make her ideas a reality and Chix was born. After three successful spring sessions, Stacey's vision continued to grow. In December 2014 Stacey and 30 women participated in a one-day holiday special, aptly named "A Very Merry Chixmas". Both Chix on Stix and A Very Merry Chixmas continued on with more successful retreats each year.
“Much of my athletic childhood was spent as a multi-sport athlete. Really, more like a sport per season type of girl, but there were always overlaps that had me and my parents constantly on the go. While skiing was always my favorite, I didn't choose it as my ultimate sport until I was well into my teenage years. If I look back on my skiing career up until this point, I know that I almost never have been the most athletic girl on the slopes, but the diverse skills I have acquired both in the field of play and off give me certain advantages when it comes to adapting to adverse situations. I have become a better person and athlete with every challenge I have taken on. I've learned to place extra value in trying new things and look to constantly expand my comfort zone.
Chix on Stix came to be when I was frustrated with constantly being stereotyped as a gate basher. There is more to me than being stuck between the fences, and I know I have more to offer others than instruction on how to ski faster. I've also become more and more appreciative of how just about everyone I meet along my journey has something to offer me, something I can learn from. I thought it would be great to create the ultimate environment where competitiveness didn't exist, but the desire to be a better person was strong. Meet Chix on Stix, where women of all ages can strive to be their own best, be challenged without being judged, and be strong and powerful while also fun and carefree. Get ready for the weekend of your life!” – Stacey Cook
