Avalanche kills woman, man lives but takes life

The young man of 27 years old, passionate of mountain, was out skiing with his girlfriend, Inge Perkins, 23 years old, when a casting of snow has triggered in their path.

Kennedy was also buried in the avalanche but managed to pull himself free, CBS News reported.

The 27-year-old's father, legendary climber Michael Kennedy, issued a statement Tuesday that read, "Inge Perkin's body was recovered by the Gallatin County Search & Rescue at the base of Mt. Imp on October 9th".

Michael Kennedy said he and his wife, Julie, "sorrowfully respect his decision".

The accomplished mountain climber who killed himself after his girlfriend died in an avalanche in Montana had seemingly been at a breaking point prior to her death, writing weeks before on a climbing blog that the sport is "either a handsome gift or a curse".

Hayden Kennedy's family said he and Perkins had recently moved to Bozeman where he was working on his emergency medical technician certificate and she was completing her bachelor's degree in math and education at Montana State University.

Officials say Perkins and Hayden Kennedy went skiing and approached a steep, narrow gully on Imp Peak in the southern Madison Range on Saturday, triggering a slide that fully buried Perkins and partially buried Kennedy. Among her accolades, the avid climber won the Montana Bouldering Championships among other competitions. Kennedy and his climbing partner were later arrested.

'Excelling at running, climbing, and skiing, the pair was always living life to the fullest and showing the world just how that's done, ' the tribute continued. Hayden grew up in the Colorado mountain town of Carbondale.

Two weeks before Perkins died, Kennedy wrote in his blog about how the mountains are a attractive place but also an unforgiving terrain because he has lost so many friends to accidents. "Friends and climbing partners are fleeting, too", he wrote for the "Evening Sends" blog. "Climbing is either a attractive gift or a curse".

Kennedy went on to talk about how he'd climbed a "big-wall route in Mexico", with two friends who have since died.

In a September 26 post on Evening Sends, Hayden Kennedy wrote about the mortality of his favorite sport. 'Justin [Griffin] died in Nepal in 2015. I think about Kyle and Justin all the time.

One wonders how much guilt Kennedy, who was once considered possibly the "best young climber on the planet" by Elevation Outdoors was able to bear as he pushed hard to win the summit.

Unfortunately, Kennedy and Perkins' last adventure together had a tragic ending.
