Parking
Park at the Teacup Lake Sno-Park on Highway 35. An Oregon Sno-Park Permit is required.  Park rear-to-snowbank (perpendicular to the snowbank) and close to the car next to you.  This will safely permit the maximum number of cars to park in the sno-park.

Cabin & Restrooms
Teacup Nordic’s Ray Garey Cabin is a heated day-use cabin for all skiers to use for warming up, stowing extra gear or having a snack out of the weather. Two sheltered and regularly-maintained restrooms (pit toilets) are located near the cabin. There is no running water at Teacup Nordic. 

Rentals & Lessons
Rental equipment is not available at Teacup Nordic Ski Area.  We recommend renting or purchasing Nordic skiing equipment at one of our local ski shops listed on the Nordic Skiing Resources page.

Teacup offers lessons for kids and a masters program for adults.  Other local organizations, including Mazamas and Wy'East Nordic offer adult cross-country skiing lessons.

Skiing with Kids
Teacup welcomes families! Nordic skiing is a great way to introduce kids of all ages to snow sports. For beginners, we recommend bringing extra layers and lots of snacks, and planning time to play in the snow and to enjoy the wood stove in the Ray Garey Cabin.  Our Youth Program is a great way for kids to get involved in the Nordic skiing community.

Dogs are NOT allowed on the Teacup Nordic trails. Dogs are allowed at Pocket Creek and Bennett Pass sno-parks.
