The 2017 event will take place Mar. 23-26 and will bring together the top recreational racers in the country to celebrate the sport of alpine racing. Both NASTAR and Steamboat have planned an exciting week of activities that includes race clinics, races, free concerts, autograph signings by U.S. Ski Team athletes and alumni, competitor raffles/giveaways, awards receptions, team races, and slalom racing. Participants and paid guests will receive discounts on lift tickets and lodging and they will be given a credential that provides great deals at on-mountain restaurants and in-town discounts on food and beverages, merchandise and recreational activities.
Racers are grouped by ability, age, gender, and discipline. Each participant will take two runs on Friday, Mar. 24 and two runs on Saturday, Mar. 25. The best handicap score earned on each race day will be averaged to determine the competitors’ final results. Each racer that wins a NASTAR National Championship title is invited to compete in the final Race of Champions competition on Sunday. Racers carry their winning handicap into the race to level the playing field so that young and veteran racers have an opportunity to win and become the overall NASTAR National Champion.
The National Championships will also include a family team race, a team race for groups for friends on Tursday and the new NASTAR Slalom Championships on Sunday afternoon.
To qualify for the Championships, NASTAR racers must earn a top ten National Ranking or a top five State Ranking by Presidents Day. Participants can also qualify by earning a top five Resort Ranking in their age and ability category. Final rankings for qualification will be availble at 2am EST, February 21, 2017.
