Ken Melamed was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1954, and moved to Montreal in 1966 when he was 13. He majored in science at Dawson College (CEGEP), Quebec, graduating in 1973 before heading west, to Jasper, Alberta.

Ken arrived in Whistler in February, 1976 and fell in love with the mountains and the small community of Whistler. He started as a lift operator for Whistler Mountain and became a professional ski patroller two seasons later in 1977, a position he’s held ever since.

In 1978, Ken worked in construction in the off-season and 10 years later started his own artisian-oriented contracting business, Ken Melamed Stoneworks, creating much of the beautiful rock walls throughout the valley.
