Skiing: Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup turns 40

GLEN, N.H. — For 40 years, the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup has served up a festive blend of high-level, pro-style racing and Mount Washington Valley ski culture.

The race, associated with the iconic apres ski favorite the Red Parka Pub, turns 40 on Friday and continues to draw skilled racers, including Olympian Tyler Palmer (three-time winner), former US Ski Team members Chrissy Guptill, Todd Thibodeau, and Taryn Palmer, NCAA Division 1 skiers, and an overflowing stein of local heroes.
