NASTAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Follow us for updates:
Resort Team Competition: Participants represent their home resort during the Nationals.
The event will be an exciting week of activities that includes race clinics, races, free concerts, autograph signings by U.S. Ski Team athletes and alumnus, 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 lunch on Thursday and the awards reception Friday evening. In addition, participant and guest credentials provide 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 Thursday and two runs on Friday. The best handicap earned on each race day will be averaged to determine the competitors’ final results. The 32 male and 32 female racers that score the most Team Points during the two days of racing will be invited to compete in the final, Race of Champions on Saturday. Racers carry their winning handicap into the race to level the playing field so that young and veteran racers have an equal opportunity to win and become the overall NASTAR National Champion.
The National Championships will also include a Family Team Race and a Friends Team Race on Wednesday.
The NASTAR Slalom Championship will kick off the racing action on Tuesday. Participants will compete in a two run stubby gate slalom race but only the best handicap is used to place racers. Participants are placed in either the Platinum/Gold division or the Silver/Bronze division based on the best handicap earned during the race. Adults will race in the morning and juniors will compete in the afternoon.
