Nick grew up in the rugged terrain of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, forging his mad skills at the legendary Kirkwood Mountain Resort where his dad, Tim Cohee, was President and Chief Dictator. Nick climbed the ranks as a local talent, eventually earning a spot on The University of Utah Ski Team. Nick is a 2X RMISA Giant Slalom Overall Leader, NCAA All-American (2009, 2012), NorAm Winner, and a self proclaimed really good skier. After a 3rd Place finish at U.S. Nationals in 2015, the US Ski Team gave Nick the nod to race the World Cup opener in Soelden, Austria, then never talked to him again. Nick has 35 FIS wins and 60+ podiums. Currently Nick is a financial planner/advisor and lives in Reno, Nevada with his wife Meagan, two boys Macson and Wiley, and Booker the dood.
