The National Championships are back in a modified format and with all of the necessary COVID precautions to keep you safe at Nationals.


After taking a year off last season due to the pandemic, the National Championships are back in a modified format and with all of the necessary COVID precautions as required by Pitkin County, home to Aspen Snowmass’s four ski resorts. You can read more about Pitkin's COVID guidelines here


To keep participants safe, the races will take place over six days rather than the usual three, allowing each division to take place on separate days. Additionally, it is recommended that all overnight visitors 10 years old and up have a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of getting to Snowmass.


We are unable to host an awards presentation and ceremony. Awards can be picked up in the NASTAR Registration Room in the Base Village Conference Center. Medallions will be awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place within each age, gender, discipline and division.


Prize money can also be picked up in the Registration Room.


“The pandemic has challenged all of us but it has provided NASTAR with an opportunity to reimagine the National Championships,” says Bill Madsen. “The new format dramatically reduces the number of participants competing each day and it gives each ability level or division their own day to compete for a national title.”


A few other reminders for participants and guests attending the Championships: 

- Masks are required in public places 

- Only ride the chairlift with members of your own party 

- Maintain 6 feet of distance from anyone not in your party 

- Wash your hands often 

- Stay home if you are feeling sick
