Dave Sullivan, the founder of Snowball Sports, died on Sunday in a ski accident in northern California.

He was 57.

Sullivan had a passion for snowboarding and skiing and was a longtime friend and fellow skier.

The Snowball family is devastated by Dave’s passing.

His wife, Christine, is the co-founder of the ski company, and he coached and mentored young skiers.

“He was a wonderful man,” his daughter Christine said in a statement.

“A truly caring father, a beloved grandfather, and a great friend.

He will be missed.”

Sullivan died on the slopes of Santa Barbara County, where the mountain is located.
