Olallie Meadows via Nordic Pass trail

The roads leading to the trailhead on my Snoqualmie Pass quad 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.
