The body of Dr. Keith Hardy, a physician and UW assistant professor who died skiing on Mount Baker, was recovered Thursday, the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office said.
Hardy, 34, was killed last Friday when he was skiing down the mountain with friends near the Coleman Glacier when he accidentally skied off a cliff on the northwest slope of the mountain and fell 800 feet.
His body was found near the 8,200-foot level, the sheriff's office said.
Hardy was a team physician for the University of Washington's men's lacrosse team since 2007; he completed his medical residency at the UW as well. He was also a medical director for the Ride to Conquer Cancer, according to the Northwest Spine & Sports Physicians.
He had been an assistant professor at UW since 2008, the Bellingham Herald said.Rescuers were unable to reach his body until Thursday because of poor weather conditions at the 8,200-foot elevation of the location.
