Weekend Pick: Cupp Run Challenge

get more from BRO

One of Snowshoe’s oldest traditions, the Cupp Run Challenge, is this Monday, February 3rd. We realize this isn’t exactly on a weekend, but it’s worth checking out!

The event is a giant slalom for skiers and snowboarders down the legendary (you guessed it) Cupp Run, which is 1500 vertical feet and nearly one mile in length. If you’re interested in saving a bit of time, sign up now online. Otherwise, you can register on Sunday, February 2nd, from 6:30-8:00pm in The Shavers Center, or on race day from 7:30-9:00am.

The entry fee is $30 for all competitors. There are six age group categories for men and women. All participants are required to wear bibs and helmets. There will be a course inspection from 9:00-10:00am with the race starting at 10:15am right at the top of Cupp Run.

There will be an awards ceremony roughly an hour after the race is over at The Connection. It should be sometime between 3:30-4:00pm.
