    AU-Snowy Mnt NSW, body found, 3 rescued in bad night for missing ppl

    Wednesday, a missing male staff member at Perisher resort (he hasn't been identified but is reported to be 'young) was found dead in a creek, next to a ski run, following a huge search. It was only realised he hadn't returned from snowboarding when he didn't turn up for work, so it was nearly 11pm at night before a search began.

    The same night three lost sportsmen were rescued from the Guthega area and are said to be very lucky to be alive. I don't know if there was a sudden onset of bad weather or something. Two were reported missing and eventually found, at which point it seems they reported that another friend with them was also missing? He wasn't found for eight hours, so it's pretty amazing he was found in relatively good health.

    'a large search was also lauched......by NSW Police, ambulance, SES and the National Parks and Wildlife Service, to find another man who was reported missing in the Guthega area around 5pm by two friends.

    The second man was found at 2.30am on Thursday near Mount Anton.
    Mr Quarmby said the man's two friends were reported missing in the afternoon for several hours before they were found by searchers.'

    The snow season has just started. I hope other people enjoying the snow take note of what can happen We had the little boy in Victorian snow fields who died buried under snow that fell off the roof of a chalet. It can be a dangerous place even for seasoned skiers. JMOO

    I was going to come in and post about the guys missing on. Mt Bogong in VIC and went to grab a link and saw that they've found a body so sad...

    Too many deaths already this season.

    Apparently the searchers saw these guys while they were looking for someone else on Friday and said hello etc, little did they know that 2days later it would be these same 2 that they'd be looking for!

    I can see bogong from my place and I've not stopped thinking of them and their families, it's such a big mountain and so much snow and treacherous conditions.

    RIP and I hope they can find his mate.
    L K out L K out, there are catterpillars about!
