Being outside was a lifestyle I grew up with. I learned to make the outdoors my playground, and the mountains and skiing was the biggest playground of all. Having a job that allows me to live the lifestyle I grew up with is the best thing ever.

Stacey learned to ski when she was four and racing became the stage to match her athletic competitiveness. She is an 11 year veteran of the US Ski Team, a 2006 and 2010 Olympian and a pacesetter at the 2012 Nature Valley NASTAR National Championships.

I love nature! It runs my life and there is no better place. I feel at peace in nature. Oats are one of my favorite foods and Nature Valley bars are full of oats. They taste great and give you great energy.

Steven Nyman has been racing professionally since the 2002 World Cup slalom. He competed in the 2006 and 2010 Olympics and numerous other international competitions. He is currently a national pacesetter for the Nature Valley NASTAR National Championships.

Skiing brings me close to nature in ways that are totally unique. It's one of the reasons that I am attracted to the sport of skiing and racing. Some of my best childhood ski memories are from running gates on a Nature Valley NASTAR racecourse with my dad and brothers.
