2013 RPP Challenge Cup Champion and Results

The 40th Annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup was held on Friday, March 15 at Attitash Mountain Resort. There were 117 racers that participated in today’s event, which is the longest running pro-style dual GS in the United States. Proceeds from today’s event benefit the Eastern Slope Ski Club, a Mt. Washington Valley-based non-profit organization that funds grade school skiers in the Mt. Washington Valley.

“This year’s race brought in more racers than we’ve seen in several years,” said Terry O’Brien, owner of the Red Parka Pub and event organizer.

All racers get two runs for the qualifying round, which is held in the morning. The top 32 racers square off in the afternoon, with several categories of winners, based on division. Division A competes to be crowned the official champion of the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup. This year, four-time winner Ben Drummond squared off against rookie Ace Tarberry in the finals, with Tarberry beating out Drummond to be crowned the 2013 champion of the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup.
