NASTAR stands for NAtional STAndard Race and is the largest public grassroots ski racing program in the world. Founded in 1968, NASTAR gives recreational racers an opportunity to compete and compare their scores to friends and family regardless of when and where they race using the NASTAR handicap system.
NASTAR was developed by SKI Magazine in 1968 and now boasts more than 100,000 races at over 100 resorts around the country. Racers are scored with a handicap system that provides participants with a tangible number, or handicap, that represents their ability against U.S. Ski Team athletes and pacesetters.
Today, NASTAR is operated by U.S. Ski & Snowboard. Through this association with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard and U.S. Ski Team, NASTAR is bringing greater awareness to the sport and value to the industry while motivating participants of all ages to get involved in ski racing.
