NASTAR is the acronym for the National Standard Race and is the largest public grassroots ski race program in the world. More than 95,000 NASTAR participants compete throughout the season to win platinum, gold, silver and bronze medals in their age and gender groups. In addition, participants are ranked in their ability group and the top ranked racers qualify to compete in the Nature Valley NASTAR National Championships.
Wintergreen is proud to offer NASTAR racing to the general public. The NASTAR race course will be open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12-2 pm weather permitting and is open to skiers. Registration is open from 11 am at the NASTAR Start Shack on Eagles Swoop. The cost for daily racing is $7 for two timed runs or $15 for as many runs as you want to take. The race is a modified Giant Slalom format and racers are timed by electronic timing and posted real time on the internet so results can be viewed. Medals are awarded to all participants who qualify as compared to the pacesetters time of the day.
This is a great way to try racing and is open to all ages and a wide range of abilities.
