Kalie and Adam Palmer

On February 1, 2021 Adam was touring the Opus hut with his favorite backcountry friends. An avalanche occurred and buried 4 members of the party. One member was recovered with minor injuries. Adam and two others are unaccounted for at this time.  Search and rescue efforts continue.

Kalie is strong and working through each minute. Her focus is on Montana and Savanna, Benny, Pua and HeHe. She is receiving so many wonderful messages and prayers from our amazing community, so please, leave those messages here so they can be digested in time. She is also cautious about COVID and would ask that people refrain from stopping by the house at this time.

We will be posting updates on the CaringBridge site as soon as we receive them so please watch that page to communicate with the family.

UPDATE: The Palmer family has been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support and kindness from our community this week. They are humbled by the incredible impact their sons, husbands and fathers have had on everyone blessed enough to know them. The family is so appreciative of the ongoing work by rescuers in San Juan County and cannot thank them enough for their heroic efforts. 

At this time, the families are asking for privacy as the search and rescue efforts continue. They are asking for a quiet time with loved ones to process all the information this situation has presented.
