A group of roughly 10 snowmobilers exploring the Palisades on Friday followed one of the most accomplished riders in the world, Rob Kincaid.

The 46-year-old Victor athlete went first down a slope and triggered an avalanche, Bonneville County Deputy Judd Aeschbacher said. The slide swept him up and ultimately claimed his life. One member of his party left to find authorities and the rest stayed behind to search for him.
