Race Information

Racers are grouped by ability, age, gender, and discipline. Each participant will take two runs on Friday and two runs on Saturday. The best handicap earned on each race day will be averaged to determine the competitors’ final results. Each racer that wins a NASTAR National Championship title within their division is invited to compete in the final Race of Champions competition on Sunday to compete in a handicapped race for the overall win. 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 Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR National Champion.

The National Championships will also include a Family Team Race and a Friends Team Race on Thursday. Friends Teams will have an opportunity to add a U.S. Ski Team member or alumni to their team.

The NASTAR Slalom Championship will kick off the racing action on Wednesday. Participants will compete in a two run stubby gate slalom race with the best handicap earned placing racers in either the Platinum/Gold division or the Silver/Bronze division. Adults will race in the morning and juniors will compete in the afternoon.
