Two area ski racing leagues will be setting practice courses this week for the 40th Annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup scheduled for Friday, March 15.
Participants in the Attitash Race League will have the opportunity to go head-to-head in a dual course this week on Spillway at Attitash Mountain Resort. This is the same course that is used for the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup, so it’s a great way for racers to get a feel for the course. The course will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5.
Participants in Cranmore Mountain Meisters can go head-to-head on a course separate from the NASTAR course where regular runs are timed at this Wednesday race league. This separate course will be available and open to anyone and will feature a pro bump, providing excellent practice for the Challenge Cup. The fastest male and female of the day, who have never raced in the Challenge Cup, will get 1/2-off of the entry fee for the Challenge Cup. The course at Cranmore will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6.
