Idaho Falls, ID. – On Thursday, the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office recovered the body of 36 year-old Adam Wayne Andersen, the snowmobile rider who was caught in an avalanche near Mt. Jefferson on Wednesday.

The search was called off on Wednesday evening, over concerns for the safety of members of the search party, due to a combination of hazardous terrain and harsh weather conditions.
Andersen’s body is now being transported Ashton.
