Body recovered after man died on Mount Baker

The Associated Press

BELLINGHAM — The body of a Seattle doctor who died skiing on Mount Baker has been recovered by a search and rescue team.

Keith Hardy, 34, was killed last week just after reaching the summit with a friend. He was skiing down the mountain near the Coleman Glacier, near the 8,200-foot level, when he skied off a cliff. Hardy apparently didn’t see the precipice in time.

The body was recovered at 12:30 p.m. Thursday after rescue teams had been hampered by bad weather for days.

Hardy was a team physician for the University of Washington’s lacrosse team and medical director of the Ride to Conquer Cancer. He graduated from the University of Michigan’s medical school, and had been an assistant professor at UW since 2008.
