Teacup Lake Nordic Snow Park Application

The Teacup Lake Snow Park located near Hood River Oregon, is a US Forest Service park with year around use, such as, hiking, biking, skiing and snow shoeing, to name a few.  The area features 20 km of groomed back country trails for both classic and skate skiing.  The Teacup Lake Nordic Club grooms the trails three days per week from December 1 through March 31 as well as maintaining the facilities, organizing cross country races and events.
