Born in Ontario, Oregon, Fisher learned to ski and race at Bogus Basin near Boise, Idaho, beginning at age 3. While growing up, his family moved to different locations in the western U.S.; he also raced in northern Arizona and Utah before returning to Idaho as a teenager. Following graduation from Eagle High School in 2003, Fisher spent a post-graduate year at the Rowmark ski academy in Salt Lake City, and was named to the national developmental team in 2004. He was the bronze medalist in the downhill at the 2005 Junior World Championships in Bardonecchia, Italy.
Fisher made his World Cup debut in November 2005 in a downhill at Lake Louise, Alberta, and finished 44th. An ACL injury in November 2007 kept him out of the rest of the 2008 season. He returned the following season in 2009 and had his best results with a seventh at Val Gardena, Italy, and an 11th at the famed Hahnenkamm downhill race in Kitzbühel, Austria.
