Always a sad day when one of the community goes down, even worse when it is one you know (even if only online).

 

Thoughts and prayers are with the families in a tough time.

Lake Jindabyne is about 3000ft AMSL and the temp at that time was 7deg and QNH 1026.

 

Sincere sympathy to family and friends. A great loss.
