    Can anyone report on current snow conditions around the High Plains?
    Planning the GF long weekend backcountry trip (mainly downhill skiing), and wondering where to head.
    Any reports from the following appreciated:
    - Mckay area
    - Tawonga Huts area
    - Spion Kopje area
    - Other recommendations from Falls Creek start point / overnight in tents (Nelse will be saved for a later trip)

    Thank you!

    Ho Boodwah, do you know what the McKay Rd is like below Eagle Rd?

    The Current xc report mentions ‘good’ above Eagle Rock to Summit but that leaves the lower 2 kms down to BHP Rd or the Aqueduct?

    Will be doing this Friday if weather is ok.
    Cheers, SG
