Basic Snowshoe - Surveyors Lake

Following some of the Nordic Pass route, then other routes, we will journey BEYOND Surveyors Lake to what is commonly called Ski Acres Hill, and hope to make a loop out of the return via Divide Lake.

Tibbets Park and Ride at 7:50am, or if prefer can meet at base of Silver Fir chair at 8:50am, no parking pass required. 

From the base parking area of the Silver Fir chair, we will work our way to intersect the marked trail up to Hyak Lake.  From this lake, we will then make our way via Grand Junction up to Surveyors Lake.  From Surveyors, I have never journeyed up to the top of Ski Acres Hill, but let's see if we can be successful.  Depending on conditions, goal would be to then descend via first Divide Lake, then return to Hyak Lake and out. I will ask that all participants be willing to participate in both navigation and trail breaking.  Let's enjoy the tail end of winter before it is gone.  Think snow!
