The Northwest community is mourning the loss of a local legend. Ken Kelley died Monday at Stevens Pass after falling in the Corona Bowl area and hitting his head on some rocks. He was not wearing a helmet. Former Stevens Pass marketing dude Matt Gormley explains Ken’s legacy.
“You can always spot Ken from a mile away, whether it was his wide smile or fluidity choosing a line down the hill. It’s tough that Stevens Pass has suffered so much loss of love and life in recent seasons, but it makes the good times that much richer and more meaningful. Ken truly embodied the spirit of the mountain: solid, quiet, genuine and legit. You will be missed. Please say hello to the boys for me.”
