Susan Corrock Luby (born November 30, 1951) is a former World Cup alpine ski racer, a member of the U.S. Ski Team in the early 1970s. Talented in all three disciplines, she had 16 top ten finishes in World Cup competition: 8 in downhill, 2 in giant slalom, and 6 in slalom.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Corrock skied as a youth at Snoqualmie Pass and later trained in Ketchum, Idaho at Sun Valley. She made her World Cup debut in January 1970 at the age of 18. Two years later, she won the bronze medal in the downhill at the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan, the only podium of her international career.[1][2] She later finished ninth in the slalom event, won by teammate Barbara Cochran; three Americans placed in the top ten. Corrock competed on the World Cup circuit for four seasons, retiring after the 1973 season at the age of 21.

From 194880 the Winter Olympics also served as the World Championships for alpine skiing.

In the real estate business, Corrock lived in Vail, Colorado in the 1980s and later relocated to Spokane, Washington with husband Bob Luby and their two children.[3]
