Much of Teacup Nordic’s operation funds come from people who purchase an annual membership. Purchasing an annual membership at the beginning of the season provides the club funds for grooming and operating costs right up front. It also frees you up to just show and ski – no need to make a daily donation. Trail grooming is contracted and costs over $2,000 weekly. Teacup also has to pay for the special use permit, repairs, kerosene, toilet paper, emptying the outhouse tank, and all the other obscure expenses of running a groomed ski program. We do not get any funding from sno-park permits, state or federal agencies. We need everyone’s support. Become a member!

Teacup Nordic Membership Dues
The minimum suggested dues for Teacup membership are listed below. Those who can afford more are encouraged to do so. In the Pacific Northwest a comparative study of membership rates and trail fees charged by other not for profit run trail systems reveals the rate listed at Teacup is – on average about 40% less than the average rate and in many cases is less than half the membership rate of other areas. We try to keep the membership as low as we can, so that anyone who wants to ski will feel welcome as a full member, but our costs of operation do increase each year so we hope those members that can do a little more will step up each year to a level similar to that charged by other areas.
Individual: $75 (High school/college students $40.00)
