Will NASTAR change under USSA?

Will NASTAR change under USSA?

Since its inception in 1968, NASTAR has introduced millions to ski racing and been a consistent asset for hundreds of resorts nationwide. This season, under the operation of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, NASTAR and the U.S. Ski Team will come together to grow awareness of the sport and motivate participants of all ages to get involved with ski racing. NASTAR Director Bill Madsen sat down to answer a few questions regarding the program’s future under USSA’s management.

Bill, you’ve been NASTAR’s leader for over 25 years. What do you see as the opportunities with the new relationship with the U.S. Ski Team?

NASTAR and the U.S. Ski Team are a natural fit. The partnership is a vital part of the USSA’s efforts to activate more young skiers into the sport across America. Integration with NASTAR will help grow awareness and serve as a recruiting tool for the USSA’s 400+ local clubs across the country. It’s about getting kids excited about the sport and creating a lifelong, family activity at ski resorts.    

Will the NASTAR racing that I am used to change?

The day-to-day operations of NASTAR racing at resorts will not change as you know it. We do want to involve more organizations so that NASTAR can be used as a complete event management system for race administrators. We want it to be easier to host races and to provide participants with more information about their experience. We want NASTAR to be used as a universal scoring system to connect alpine racers across the country.

What is going to happen with NASTAR in the immediate future?

Our goal is to unite alpine racing under one organization so that we can promote the sport and the stars of the U.S. Ski Team.

Will NASTAR scoring change?

One of NASTAR’s greatest assets is its scoring system, which will not change?

What will happen with NASTAR pricing?

NASTAR provides very low cost entry into ski racing – that will not change. In fact, that was one of the key areas of interest of the U.S. Ski Team as NASTAR offers an easy way for kids to start ski racing.

Who runs NASTAR now? Is this a permanent change?

The USSA administers NASTAR and the plan is to make this a permanent change. NASTAR is a franchise that is provided to resorts and clubs across the country annually so that they can offer their guests or members a turn-key alpine racing solution.

Why was this decision made?

The change was made to bring all levels of alpine racing under one roof. In addition, with NASTAR operated by the USSA there will be a seamless transition for athletes to move from NASTAR racing, to USSA racing, to FIS racing.

Will USSA host all of the same NASTAR events?

The U.S. Ski Team plans to keep a strong focus on NASTAR events, including the NASTAR Pacesetting Trials and the NASTAR National Championships. This year’s championships will take place March 24-27. A venue will be announced later this month.
