Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso has been skiing on the World Cup circuit since she was 16 years old. The Lake Tahoe-native has done a lot since starting her World Cup career—she's seen the world, started her own lingerie line, opened a training center in California, filmed for Warren Miller and competed in three Olympics, a few freeskiing comps, and countless World Cup events.
