Danelle was a single 22 yr old mother of a 4 yr old boy. Danelle, her boyfriend Dan and his cousin Chris were out snowmobiling Saturday the 14th enjoying the wintry outdoors when tragedy hit. One of Montana's biggest avalanche took Danelle and Chris away from their families and friends. Dan was rescued by nearby snowmobilers who came to investigate the tremendous noise. He was buried under 6 feet of snow. Chris was found that afternoon buried 15 feet under blocks of ice from the lake at the base of the slide. Danelle was found Sunday 20 feet from where Dan was found under 15 feet of powdery snow. 20 feet from where her body was recovered the avalanche ended. 20 feet from life. 20 feet that took a little 4 yr old boys mom away from him. 20 feet.
