Corby Fisher named the new Snowsports Director,
bringing Olympic and world-class experience to Dodge Ridge Dodge Ridge President Sally Helm has named Corby Fisher as the new Snowsports School Director. Fisher will be responsible for providing leadership and vision to the Snowsports School and the Dodge Ridge Race Team. In addition to the Snowsports School, Fisher will also be in charge of the Events department. Fisher comes to Dodge Ridge with a long tradition of excellence in skiing. Growing up in Steamboat Springs, CO Fisher was on skis before he could walk. The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club was a perfect fit for Fisher as he grew up racing his friends around Mt. Werner and eventually excelling in Nordic ski jumping. Fisher was named to the US Ski Jumping Team in 1992, but a series of serious injuries cut his promising career short in 1995. While studying at the University of Wyoming and the University of Utah, Fisher began coaching at the National Sports Foundation (NSF) in Park City, UT. It was at the NSF that Fisher developed his coaching and business skills, progressing as the Head Coach and Director. Fisher created ground breaking international results in ski jumping in an extremely competitive European environment. Under Fisher's direction, the NSF grew to be the largest club in North America and was the host club for the ski jumping events during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, UT. Following the winter of 2002 Fisher progressed to the US Ski Team as Head Ski Jumping Coach for the US Nordic Combined Team. Fisher had an immediate impact and made history as his athlete, Johnny Spillane, won the first gold medal in US Nordic history at the World Championships in Val de Femme, Italy. In 2004, Fisher was promoted to Head Ski Jumping Coach, leading US jumpers in world cup competition around the globe. In 2006, Fisher again made history as the youngest Head Coach at the Olympic Games in Torino, Italy. Following the Olympics, Fisher decided to trade in the grueling travel schedule for something much closer to home and transferred his knowledge of how to create a winning team and his love of skiing to Deer Valley, UT. At Deer Valley, the number 1 ski resort in North America, he was the Assistant Children's Program Manager, returning to his first love of seeing children learn to ski. Fisher is excited about his move to Dodge Ridge. "After skiing around the world, from Steamboat to Sestriere, I was looking for a great spot to share my love of snowsports. With Dodge Ridge's investment in their new Family Lodge, and progressive terrain, it was a perfect fit for both my ski-family and all the people of California." "We are thrilled to have Corby here at Dodge Ridge. Fisher is currently living in Cold Springs with his wife Emily, and 10 month old daughter Keely.

We will for sure put it on the calendar for next year," said Events Director Corby Fisher.
Gather up your friends and come play at Dodge Ridge and Mountain Springs to find out who is the best skier-rider-golfer, it will be a day we talk about all summer," said Event Director Corby Fisher. The Family Winter Carnival was a vision of Snowsports and Event Director Corby Fisher. Fisher grew up in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where the annual Winter Carnival was one of the highlights of the winter. "I grew up with a huge community ski culture and wanted to bring the carnival to the families of Dodge Ridge," said Fisher. I wish we could do this every weekend," said Fisher. Snowsports Director Corby Fisher and local artist Eileen Hampton team up to create a unique environment for kids in the Family Lodge. "The mural was a vision I had from the second I saw the amazing Family Lodge", said Corby Fisher, Director of the Dodge Ridge Snowsports School, former United States Ski Team athlete and Olympic Coach. No more Olympic coaching for Corby and Emily Fisher. "Life has changed a bit, but it's better," Corby says. "This is the coolest thing I've ever done." The Fishers, both 33, have discovered their ideal nest at Dodge Ridge. He's the resort's snow sports director. She's the marketing director. "Corby said they saw in Dodge Ridge a resort with heart," Dodge owner Sally Helm said. Corby and Emily arrived two years ago, a couple eager to start a family and also pass along their rich experience. Meanwhile, Corby was immersed into the rodeo-summer-skiing-winter genre as a kid at Steamboat Springs, Colo. For him, it was perfectly natural to ride bulls, jump out of planes and race down the mountain as fast as possible. "Fear is kind of an illusion," he says. The couple met in Park City, Utah, in 2000, while Corby served as the coach and director of the National Sports Foundation. He sought a woman who could identify talent for a new discipline -- women's ski jumping. Corby, a former student at Wyoming and Utah, made his coaching mark via breakthrough international results in ski jumping. His NSF grew into the largest club in North America and was the host club for the Olympic ski jumping in 2002. He then became the head ski jumping coach for the U.S. Nordic Combined Team and, in 2003, guided Johnny Spillane to the first-ever gold medal by an American at the Nordic World Ski Championships. In 2006, Fisher again made history as the youngest head coach at Torino. "The older we get, the more special those times get for us at Torino," Corby says. Emily's determination to pioneer women's ski jumping has not waned. The event will make its debut in the upcoming World Championships in the Czech Republic, though its coming-out party in the Olympics probably won't happen until 2014. Still, the couple has deferred virtually all world-wide pursuits in favor of their children. Corby reluctantly has walked away from bull riding and skydiving. "After skiing around the world, from Steamboat to Sestriere, I was looking for a great spot to share my love of snow sports," Corby said. The Family Winter Carnival is a vision of Snowsports and Event Director Corby Fisher. Fisher grew up in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where the annual Winter Carnival was one of the highlights of the winter. "I grew up with a huge community ski culture and wanted to bring the carnival to the families of Dodge Ridge," said Fisher. Corby Fisher, a former U.S. Ski Team athlete and coach, is bringing fresh ideas and the latest techniques to all of Dodge's skier and rider development programs, including the opening of the Children's Interpretive Program. "The Dodge Ridge Snowsports Instructors will be lighting up the night, the whole family will enjoy the torchlight parade," said Corby Fisher, Director of Events.
