What is NASTAR?
NASTAR is the acronym for the NAtional STAndard Race and is the largest public grassroots ski race program in the world. More than 100,000 NASTAR racer days are recorded throughout the season at 110 resorts. Participants compete within their age and gender groups to win platinum, gold, silver and bronze medals. In addition, participants are ranked in their medal group and the top ranked racers qualify to compete in the NASTAR National Championships.
NASTAR was developed by SKI Magazine in 1968 to provide recreational racers with an opportunity to compete and to compare their scores to friends and family members regardless of when and where they race. The NASTAR handicap system is a standardized scoring program that provides participants with a tangible number that represents their ability. The NASTAR.com web site records each participants stats and ranks each racer at the host resort, in their state of residence and nationally. The NASTAR program is operated by the U. S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and it is the premier youth feeder program for the U.S. Ski Team.
