Teacup Lake Nordic Club is gearing up for another busy season on its 12 miles of scenic and forested trails in the Mt. Hood National Forest. The popular Nordic ski area is maintained and operated by the Teacup Lake chapter of the Oregon Nordic Club through volunteer efforts, membership fees and donations. The entire network of trails is groomed multiple times per week and offers a variety of experiences, from the leisurely stroll through snow-covered forests to the hard-core skating terrain fit for a biathlete.
With enough snow already on the main trails and more in the forecast for the next week, the club is hosting its annual demo and lesson day on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nordic retailers will be on hand to demo all kinds of equipment; from high-performance skate and classic skis and boots to skate skis for junior skiers, and lightweight touring gear ideally suited for the tracks at Teacup Lake. Lessons of 20-30 minute duration will also be available upon request.
Teacup Nordic hosts a variety of events, activities and competitions throughout the winter. For more information, to learn about membership or to view a map of the trails visit www.teacupnordic.org.
