I wish we had a clear night, I might have to go another time. Whats funny now is all the tourists rocking up from the Threadbo chairlift in jeans and tennis shoes... Apparently some Canadian ex military went missing in May or something, I was talking to some Canadian volunteers who flew over to look for him, seems he left his pack and jacket in a blizzard... Seems odd.
Not odd at all, when yr body begins to freeze you begin to lose all common sense and start to feel like you're sweating and overheating to the point you want to throw off your jacket. In reality though you're not overheating but your body is instead starting to shut down and give in to the cold. Unfortunately, I think it's probable the fellow you're talking about May have frozen to death
