National Championships Slalom
The Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR Slalom Championships will be run on Wednesday, March 21 and race trail will be Julia's Gold accessed by the Exhibition chairlift.
Participants will be placed in a division based on the handicap they earn during the race. Participants that earn a platinum or gold medal handicap in their age and gender group will be placed in the Platinum/Gold division. If a participant records a silver or bronze medal handicap in their age and gender group, they will earn a final result in the Silver/Bronze division.
There are two ability divisions within each age and gender group:
Awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age, gender and ability group on the awards stage in the funitel plaza.
Gates will be set approximately 12 meters apart and the race will be run using SPM Hero gates or stubby gates. We believe the short gates allow racers to focus on making shorter radius turns without concerning themselves with blocking gates. The stubby gates are made of a soft rubber material so special protection is not necessary. Hero stubby gates provide racers with the opportunity to ski fast while avoiding the impact associated with crossblocking standard slalom gates.
We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to compete in the NASTAR Slalom Championship. There is no qualification for the slalom race and the event is open to all interested competitors, but pre-registration is required to race.
* Registration for the slalom closes Saturday, March 20 at 6pm
