    Sadly, eagle way (that crappy little trail) tends to hold up opening most of the supertrail side of the mountain.

    It really depends on how eagle way, meadows and bottom of supertrail hold up. I would hazard a guess and say they will try for this weekend and if not definitely next weekend.

    If you are lucky, Snowgums.. maybe... doesn't need Eagle Way and has the mid station.

    Eagle Way was very skiable before this storm. It's the lower slopes that are holding up the other side opening.

    Might be a bit different once you get a lot of people snow-plowing down it over several days, maybe

    But based on the fact they will probably get 45cm+ (Including wind blown) out of this system, I would imagine that will be plenty to keep Eagle Way ski able for an extended time period,

    As long as they get ~20cm and a good 36 hours of snow making down on the lower slopes then Supertrail is definitely a possibility this weekend, this is really when we need a good mid-station to ensure early season skiing

    If you don't care about your skis, sure you can ski down.

    Yea, wouldn't be surprised by this, Antons would have got a good covering from the wind blown and natural snow,

    Supertrail pretty much covered by snowmaking apart from Eagle way

    As I said, it's the lower slopes that are the problem.
