The president of ConocoPhillips Alaska was killed in an avalanche and another person in his snowmobiling party is missing, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Rescuers recovered the body of Jim Bowles near Spencer Glacier shortly after police received a 911 call at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, said troopers spokesperson Megan Peters.

“When he was found CPR was attempted but [he] could not be revived,” she said.
