They did leave the ending a bit ambiguous!
Kate: Either froze to death in the snow cat or made it to the Russian research base that was mentioned earlier in the prequel. A fringe possibly is that she had become infected on the alien ship and is in the process of being assimilated and opted to simply sit there and wait it out. In their DVD commentary the writers/directors/producers put forward the theory that she returned to the camp, discovered that Lars had taken off in pursuit of the dog and followed him to the American camp in the snowcat, arriving in time to rescue MacCready and Childs at the end of John Carpenter's film.
