As a Big Sky, Montana native, Keely Kelleher, found her passion for the outdoors and skiing early. She started ski racing at five years old. Kelleher ski raced for twenty years, eight of which were on the U.S. Ski Team. Kelleher raced competitively on the World Cup speed circuit for four of those years, scoring regularly, and winning the 2010 National Super G title.
Post retirement from the U.S. Ski Team Keely earned her B.A. in Business Management at Westminster College in Utah. Her passion for skiing led her to a two-time win of the Big Mountain Skier X Rahlves Banzai Tour and being a featured athlete in the 2012 Warren Miller film’s Flow State and the 2013 film Ticket to Ride.
In 2011 Kelleher founded the first ski racing camp for girls in North America, Keely’s Ski Camp for Girls, based around the mission to coach, inspire and empower young girls through ski racing and free skiing.
Outside of skiing you can find Keely enjoying the outdoors with her friends and family in her kayak, on her mountain bike, and atop her favorite mountains in Montana.
