Legendary Back Bowls - A True Spring Gem: Tea Cup Bowl

Tea Cup Bowl provides smooth trails on favorite runs like Emperor’s Choice and Red Zinger. From 10-11 a.m. during springtime, the trails soften up and then they hit perfect corn consistency around noon. This results in some of the best skiing and riding on the mountain. Adventure can be found through Tea Cup Express Lift (#36) and Orient Express Lift (#21).
