Aspen Local Killed In Maroon Bowl Sidecountry Avalanche

From The Aspen Daily News:

Local man Adam Dennis was killed Monday in an avalanche in the Aspen Highlands sidecountry.

Authorities received a call from members of a five-person group in which Dennis was skiing at 2:45 p.m., according to a Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office press release. The caller, using a cell phone, reported the slide in Desolation Row, an out-of-bounds run dropping toward the Maroon Creek Valley accessed from the Highland Bowl ridge. 

Dennis, 38, and his companions were all wearing beacons, said sheriff’s deputy Adam Crider. Other members of the group were able to ski to Dennis’ location and dig him out within 15 minutes of the slide, Crider said, but resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.
