A legend in the sport of freestyle skiing, Feddersen is widely recognized as a pioneer in the sport. He competed in three Olympics (88, 92, 94) and numerous world championships and coached the 1998 U.S. Winter Olympic Aerial Ski Team to two gold medals. Feddersen tallied up over 30 visits to the podium throughout his successful career on the World Cup Circuit. He has also been featured in many commercials and Warren Miller ski films.
Growing up in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Feddersen says it was a perfect environment to become one of the world's premier skiers. His nickname "Fuzz" came from his hair. "I've had thick fuzzy hair all my life, especially when I was skiing and competing as a kid," he says. Feddersen is the first one to admit that he enjoys his nickname and that it is here to stay.
Feddersen is currently the CEO of Flying Ace Productions, Inc., a Utah-based entertainment company specializing in Olympic and acrobatic style performances featuring the world's foremost Olympic athletes. His unique personality and natural exuberance make him an ideal emcee and personality for events and television. Feddersen currently resides in Park City, Utah with his wife LeeAnne, daughter Ella, and son Luke.
