Skate skiing (also called race skiing) is an exciting, fast-moving sport. It’s like ice-skating, but on snow. If you already know how to rollerblade or ice-skate, you can pick up skate skiing in no time! Come give it a try with our skate ski equipment! We have everything you need, at no extra rental charge. You’ll learn on the groomed tracks at the Teacup Lake Nordic Center on the east side of Mt. Hood. These trails are groomed each weekend by the Oregon Nordic Club. Since the area is well marked, once you learn the basics, you can go at your own pace and ski whatever loops you choose. For more information, stop by our office in Templeton.
