Our Story

Our Story

Teacup Lake Nordic Club, a non-profit organization, is proud to operate and maintain a cross-country ski area in the Mt. Hood National Forest under a Ski Area Term Special Use Permit from the US Forest Service. Our 20+ kilometers of trails are varied; from flat and easy, to challenging hills with turns. Trails are groomed for both skate and classic skiing. Teacup Nordic is a volunteer-run organization and all trail fees and donations go directly to fund trail maintenance and grooming, programs for kids and adults, races, and family-friendly events.
