What is a NASTAR handicap

What is a NASTAR handicap

Each time you race NASTAR you earn a handicap that represents the percentage your time is behind Ted Ligety's time (e.g. 15 handicap = 15 percent behind Ted's time).

The NASTAR Handicap System gives ski and snowboard racers a simplified system to gauge their progress throughout the season and allows racers of all ages and abilities a means to compare their race results to other competitors across the country regardless of when and where they race. This is accomplished by establishing a National Standard for all races.

The National Standard is the Par Time or Ted Ligety's "0" handicap which every racer competes against when they race NASTAR. Each NASTAR resort has Pacesetters that have earned certified handicaps that are used to set Ted's Par Time for their course. NASTAR participants earn a handicap each time they race which represents the difference between the racer’s time and the Par Time expressed as a percentage.

The goal is to lower your handicap or score and improve your ranking. The NASTAR handicap chart shows the handicap range for each age and gender age group. Racers that are in different age and gender groups can compete by comparing the medal earned. For example, if you race your daughter and she earns a silver medal and you earn a bronze medal she wins. Her handicap has earned her a better medal based on age and gender.

The NASTAR Handicap System is designed to award medals to participants within their age and gender group and to place participants in their appropriate Racer Division.

When a participant races in a discipline other than Alpine Skier they receive a handicap discount. Snowboarders, Telemarkers and Physically Challenged Racers receive handicap discounts toward winning NASTAR medals and scoring points for their team(s) only. The actual handicap earned is the handicap that is recorded and posted on your Race Record.
