Cross Country Skiing at Tea Cup

Let's go cross country at Tea Cup. Cross Country skiing is free, tea cup does accept donations for trail and grooming maintenance. Deek & Bryan's Next Adventure has cross country rentals for $20, not bad, REI is $30 but maybe $27 if your a member. There are beginner to advanced hills. All level skiers are welcome. I can give you a little help, but it's pretty easy. You can learn how to cross country ski in one day. It does take some leg strength and coordination. Moderate athletic ability is helpful. You can ski with the group, or just cruise around the flat trails at your own pace. The goal is to get out in nature, enjoy breathing the fresh air in the mountains, and ski among the trees! You should rent if you need to the day before we go, cuz not many people carpooling want to wait around at ski shops in Sandy or ?. Meet at gateway transit center parking garage at 10AM to carpool, or just meet us up at Tea Cup at the warming house at 11:30. Tea Cup has nice groomed trails and a nice warming house to have lunch and hot chocolate. Bring a lunch and your own water, we can eat in the warming house. Driving the hwy 26 way seems to be the fastest. The trails are located 2 miles past Meadows on your right when heading down Hwy 35 towards Hood River. We can carpool and buy a daily winter parking pass for $5 or season for $25 usually. There are are also Snowshoes trails at Pocket Creek just 2 miles down the road, you can snowshoe, then come up to the warming house at Tea Cup and have lunch at 2PM.

    Hi Eric,
    What a great idea! Cross country skiing is sooo easy. My daughter loved it at age five. When do you think we'll be back?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
