Biography:
Chad Fleischer competed in the 1994 Winter Olympics and 1998 Winter Olympics. Fleischer is a ten-year veteran of the Men's U.S. Alpine Ski Team, Two Time National DH skiing Champion, named to Five World Championship Teams and Three Olympics Teams (could not compete in 2002 Salt Lake Olympics due to dislocated right knee in Wengen SUI three weeks prior to the Games). His best performance came in 1999 at the World Cup Finals where he won a Silver Medal behind Lasse Kjus of Norway.

Chad moved to Vail, Colorado at the age of 10 and came to Steamboat at age 18 to work with the best alpine ski coach in the country, Aldo Radamus, who was the Alpine Director for the SSWSC. Chad fell in love with Steamboat while living and training here during the 1990 winter and decided he would someday call Steamboat home after finishing his ski racing career. He made the move after retiring in 2004.

Chad Fleischer now owns and operates a chain of ski rental and retail stores called Fleischer Sport. His wife Renée is a former San Diego Charger cheerleader and Denver Bronco cheerleader. They were married May 2000 in Maui, Hawaii.

Both their sons were born in Steamboat. Fleisher’s two boys, Jonah and Talon, both ski raced for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and Chad is a volunteer coach for the SSWSC.
