Sunday was the first annual “Bartlett Cup” at Nub’s Nob. This race was formerly known as the “Super G on Sno Pro” and is the final race in the Volkl/Marker/Dalbello Speed Series. The Bartlett Cup is named in honor of our General Manager and President Jim “JB” Bartlett for his years of commitment to Nub’s and the ski racing community here. It is fitting to name this race in his honor on the 30th anniversary of Sno Pro. Sno Pro was built in 1987, during JB’s first season as GM at Nub’s. The run is named after former General Manager, Jim Dilworth, who passed away in 1987. The Bartlett Cup will live on the mantle in the Nub’s Pub and fastest female and male skier on the day will have their names engraved on the cup. Martha Bowman and Ben Tolzdorf are the winners of the first ever Bartlett Cup. For full race results click here.
