Associated trip report: We rode the Silver Fir lift at Snoqulamie Pass to the upper cross country skiing trails, then headed out into the Sunrise loops to get warmed up. These are great trails for children, as the grooming makes for a consistent skiing surface and the gentle terrain provides little hills on which kids can get some downhill skiing thrill. We then skied out to the Rockdale Lake overlook and took the winding, hilly trail back toward Sunrise loops. The larger, steeper hills on this trail provide children with a greater skiing challenge, but kids with a little skill in snowplow skiing can do fine. Not yet ready to quit, we skied the main trail over to the top of Hyak, then skied the longer descent to near the bridge over Mill Creek. After (another) snack break, we toiled up a steep trail and regained the Sunrise loops, then back to Grand Junction and the cross country skiing trail to the ski area.
