About NASTAR Championships

NASTAR participants qualify for the championships by earning a top ten national ranking or a top five state ranking within their age, gender and ability group. Racers can also qualify by earning a top ranking at their favorite NASTAR resort or at a Regional Championship event.

The 2019 event will be 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 lunch on Friday and the awards reception Saturday. 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. 

Championships Race Format Details
  • Racers are grouped by ability, age, gender, and discipline
  • Racers 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.
Family & Friends Race Details

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.
