OLYMPIAN & WORLD EXTREME FREESKIING CHAMPION
World Champion, Wendy Fisher is an icon in the sport of big mountain freeskiing, also known as extreme skiing. Her successful freeskiing career has included traveling the globe to film with production companies including Matchstick Productions and Warren Miller Entertainment.
Prior to her film career, Fisher was a member of the U.S. Ski Team, competed at the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, won the 1991 U.S. Nationals overall, in addition to taking home two Extreme Freeskiing world titles.
In 2009, Freeskier Magazine named Fisher one of the “seven most influential women in skiing.” Throw in Gravity Games, X-Games and ski mountaineering experience and there's nothing Fisher hasn't sampled in the high-stakes, high-speed world of cutting-edge skiing. Fisher is a full time resident of Mt. Crested Butte, CO along with her husband and two sons.

A Winter X Games Gold Medalist and Olympian, Aaron is setting himself up for a successful skiing career. With a long family history of skiing, and tremendous dedication to the sport of freeskiing, Aaron has truly become a world class athlete.
Aaron competed in the 2014 Sochi Olympics as the youngest American male to compete on the halfpipe team (then 17). Aaron started skiing at only 18 months old on the slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort. His grandfather helped start the ski school, for both Aaron and his brother, skiing was in their blood.
Aaron’s dedication and hard work paid off during the 2017/2018 season when he took home the 2017 Winter X Games Gold in the men’s superpipe. Aaron then went on to become the International Ski Federation (FIS) Half Pipe World Champion on March 18, 2017.
