Bozeman woman dies in avalanche

Avalanche causes skier fatality south of Big Sky

Inge Perkins, 23, and Hayden Kennedy, 27 - both sponsored outdoor athletes - had been backcountry skiing when a slab of hard snow slid down on top of them.

Kennedy, hailed as one of the world's greatest alpinists, was partially buried and managed to dig himself out but his girlfriend Perkins, an avid climber and ski mountaineer, was buried 3 feet under the avalanche measuring 150 feet by 300 feet, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office said. "Unable to bear the loss of his partner in life, the following day, Sunday, October 8, Hayden Kennedy took his own life".

Doug Chabot, of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center, told Outside Magazine that Kennedy left a note with "incredibly clear directions for where to find her" in lieu of calling 911.

Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center shared the tragic news.

The tragedy comes just weeks after Hayden wrote a handsome piece on climbing in the wake of tragedy.

Two weeks before Perkins died, Kennedy wrote in his blog about how the mountains are a lovely place but also an unforgiving terrain because he has lost so many friends to accidents.

In Memory of Hayden Kennedy ⠀ ⠀ It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our friend, Ambassador and true brother of the BD tribe, Hayden Kennedy.

Michael Kennedy, an accomplished mountaineer in his own right, also wrote to his son about losing multiple friends to the sport. "He chose to end his life", his parents said in a statement. There's no easy way to say this, but half that team is now dead. Kennedy took his own life as they were preparing to pull her remains free. "And Kyle, along with his partner, Scott Adamson, vanished while climbing on a remote peak in north Pakistan a year later". "Myself and his mother Julie sorrowfully respect his decision", Michael Kennedy wrote.

The alpinist couple had recently moved to Bozeman, Montana, near to where the accident occurred, so Ms Perkins could complete her studies of mathematics and education at the Montana State University.

The climber was well-known for climbing the Southeast Ridge in Patagonia's Cerro Torre in 2012 and removing numerous bolts placed there more than four decades earlier by Italian climber Cesare Maestri, the Associated Press reported.

Their deaths sent shockwaves through the climbing world, and footwear company SCARPA wrote on their Facebook, "These two young adventurers inspired us all to push our limits and most importantly, have fun doing it".

"An awareness of mortality prompts us to focus on what's important: developing a strong community of family and friends", he wrote.

Just a week before his death, Hayden wrote an article about the perils of climbing mountains.
