A Vermont man was among five killed by a massive avalanche in Colorado Saturday.
Colorado authorities Sunday confirmed that Ian Lamphere, 36, of Crested Butte, was killed in what's being called the state's deadliest avalanche in more than 50 years. Lamphere was a UVM grad and co-founder of the Stowe Mountain Film Festival. More recently, he was co-owner of Gecko Climbing Skins, a maker of skins for backcountry skis.
Officials say search and rescue crews recovered the bodies from an area on Loveland Pass. The group included Christopher Peters, 32, of Lakewood, Colo.; Joseph Timlin, 32, of Gypsum; Ryan Novack, 33, of Boulder; and Rick Gaukel, 33, of Estes Park. A sixth snowboarder, who survived the slide, managed to call for help. The group was reportedly taking part in an event promoting backcountry safety.
