Please follow some basic rules, etiquette, and common sense policies to help keep Teacup Nordic 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 $3,700 weekly.
  • Sorry, 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. Dogs and snowshoes are allowed at Pocket Creek, Bennett Pass and on some of the Mt Hood Meadows area trails.
  • No snowshoes, cycles or walking are allowed on the groomed trails
    Mixing snowshoes, bikes and skis on the same trail does not work. There are a lot of places to snowshoe on Mt Hood, but Teacup Nordic is not one of them.
  • Ski within your abilities and ski at your own risk.
    Teacup Nordic area is generally patrolled on weekends and holidays by the Mt Hood Ski Patrol. A sign near the cabin will indicate if the ski patrol is on or off duty. For all emergencies call 911.
  • 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 Club 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 Club volunteer is available to open it.
  • Please use the sheltered restrooms.
    They are not heated, but very comfortable.
