According to reports, Kate Matrosova, a 32-year-old financial analyst from Manhattan, was found dead on Monday in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. A team of rescuers set out on Sunday in 108-mile-per hour winds in an attempt to save her after she activated her emergency beacon within a few hours of setting out.

Matrosova plan was to hike Mt. Washington, the highest peak in New Hampshire.

NBC reports that….

Search and rescue crews couldn’t reach the area overnight because of extreme winds exceeding 100 mph and temperatures about 30 degrees below zero, authorities said.

A National Guard crew flew over the area with a helicopter on Monday morning but couldn’t see anything because of blowing snow and had to turn back.

A team made up of Fish and Game officers, Mountain Rescue Services members and Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue members braved 108 mph winds and frigid temperatures to reach the area. They said it appears Matrosova, 32, died of exposure to the extreme temperatures.
