Please follow some basic rules, etiquette, and common sense policies to help keep Teacup a safe and fun place for all skiers.

  • Become a member or pay the daily trail fee of $10.00 per skier per day for adults; kids ski free. Please do your part so that we can continue to offer the best groomed ski trails on the mountain! Trail grooming is contracted and costs over over $2,000 weekly.
  • No dogs.
    Dogs are not allowed: dogs and groomed trails don’t mix well. It is a safety problem and dogs damage the groomed tracks. Take your dog to one of the 30 other cross-country ski areas where dogs are allowed.
  • No snowshoes or walking are allowed on the groomed trails
    Mixing snowshoes and skis on the same trail does not work. There are a lot of places to snowshoe on Mt Hood, but Teacup is not one of them.
  • Ski within your abilities and ski at your own risk.
    Teacup Lake Nordic area is not patrolled and does not have any medical staff on site.
  • Carry out your trash
    We do not have trash pickup at the cabin.
  • Enjoy yourself, have fun and be nice to other skiers.
    We all have more fun that way. Be especially nice to the Teacup volunteers.
  • Use the Ray Garey day use cabin.
    It’s great for warming up, stowing extra gear or having lunch out of the weather. It’s a place to meet other skiers and to feel like part of the ski community. The cabin is usually open to the public on grooming days from 7 AM until 4 PM or occasionally on other days if a Teacup volunteer is available to open it.
  • Please use one of the two sheltered restrooms.
    It is not heated, but very comfortable.
