Athlete Bio

Liz Stephen packs a lot of strength, energy and integrity into her small frame. Wiry and strong, the last five years have been a sharp ascent up the ranks of distance skiing—a fitting trajectory for Stephen, who is known throughout the racing community as one of the best climbers in the world. Stephen has been on the 2010 and 2014 U.S. Olympic team, posting the best U.S. finish in the 30k FS in Sochi. She has also been a member of the World Championship team in 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015. Off the snow Stephen likes to read, adventure with friends—especially in the desert or the mountains—and jump in cold lakes or rivers whenever she can find one. Being based in Park City with over 400 miles of trails, she mountain bikes both for fun and training.
