Olallie Meadows via Nordic Pass trail
The roads leading to the trailhead on my Snoqualmie Pass
were inaccurate, causing us to wander around a bit.
We did this on skis and at the end we all agreed it is a snowshoe route.
There were not many long, open downhill slopes between Hyak and Nordic
Pass, we dodged a lot of trees. There was also a lot of gradual
uphill on the way down, but it went OK with scales on our skis.
Elevation gain: approx. 1,385 feet
Trip type: backcountry ski
USGS quads: Snoqualmie Pass, Lost Lake
