20 km (12 miles) of groomed trails
Terrain is varied; from flat and easy, to challenging hills with turns. Tracks are set by a full-size Snocat for both skating and touring skis. Our groomed trails are not as wide as those at some large commercial areas, but about 60-70% of the trails are wide enough for 2 sets of tracks and a skating lane in the center.
Wide, deluxe, regularly-groomed trails
Our trails are usually groomed on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Your club memberships, trail fees and donations pay for our dependable grooming contractor. He is also a nordic skier and a club member, so he strives to keep up with snow fall and groom the nicest ski trails possible. If you are on the trails while our contractor is grooming, give him a wave and a thank-you, but please stay clear of the groomer.
Ray Garey day-use cabin
The Ray Garey Cabin is a heated day-use cabin for warming up, stowing extra gear or having lunch out of the weather. Memberships and trail fees have made this happen. It’s a place to meet other skiers and to feel like part of the ski community. The cabin is open to the public on grooming days (generally Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday).
Two sheltered and regularly-maintained restrooms (pit toilets) are located near the cabin.
Right off the highway and close parking
Park at the Teacup Lake Sno-Park on highway 35 to access the trails. A Sno-Park permit is required.
Sorry, No Snowshoes or Dogs Allowed
The focus of the Teacup trail system in on Nordic skiing and our groomer works very hard to lay down premium tracks so we do not allow snowshoes or dogs on the the trails. Luckily, Mt. Hood offers lots of other trails that allow both. Dogs and snowshoes are allowed at Pocket Creek, Bennet Pass and on some of the Mt Hood Meadows area trails.
