The event will be an exciting week of activities. Race registration includes a National Championship gift bag, races, live music, pacesetting by elite athletes, awards and prize money. Participants and paid guests will receive discounts on lift tickets and lodging and they will be given a credential that provides two lunches at the Spider Sabich Picnic Palace.
Racers are grouped by ability division, age and gender. Each participant will take a minimum of two runs to record their lowest handicap, but participants should be prepared to take additional runs as conditions and time allow. Some racers will take as many as ten race runs. Awards will be presented within each age, gender and divisional group in the finish area following the race and the top racers will qualify for a final, head-to-head race the next day.
The 32 juniors and 32 adult racers that score the most Points during their divisional race (Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum) will be invited to compete in the finals. The Finals or Race of Champions are head-to-head single elimination handicapped races that award prize money to top three juniors and the top three adults in each ability division. Qualified racers carry their winning handicap into the race to level the playing field so that boys and girls, young and veteran racers all have an equal opportunity to win and become an overall NASTAR National Champion. The final for the Bronze Division is April 5th, the Silver Division is April 6th, the Gold Division is April 7th and the Platinum Division Finals is April 8th.
Racers that are very fast and score a handicap/medal that is above their qualifying division will get bumped up to the next divisional race and they will compete the next day (Competition Format).
In addition to the National Championship races, there will be a warmup race on Monday. The NASTAR Slalom Championship will kick off the racing action. Participants will compete in a two run stubby gate slalom race where their best result will place them in their division. Participants are placed in either the Platinum/Gold division or the Silver/Bronze division based on the best handicap earned during the race.
