I actually get far less slippage (zero) on carpet than concrete (occaisonal when dirty).

I absolutely love concrete. I will say a natural tee is not bad, but then you run into the problem of having an uneven tee box or rain the natural tee is terrible. I guess when it comes down to it, I really could care less as long as the tee box is in good condition.

For players that disc golf in the winter, what type of tees work for the best grip?

Concrete - If long enough with no drop offs
Rubber - Ditto
Natural - When its not to torn up and poses a tripping risk.

+1. We started filling our carpeted frames with mulch instead of finely filtered gravel just cuz it was cheaper, and stumbled onto the ultimate cushion for a T-pad !
