April 21, 2021 – It was a great NASTAR season after a slow start.  Most people figured out the “new” paperwork.  Should be the same for next season – so you know how to do it now!

Thank you to all that participated in NASTAR – I enjoy seeing all of you take on the courses!

The 15th annual SLUSH CUP (Duals) happened on April 17th.  This is a fundraiser for the Bear Valley SnowSports Foundation (BVSF). Results can be found at

Come next winter: Ellen will be at the Kiosk on Sat & Sun, 8:30am – 10:00am to help with registrations, ID stickers, pin pick-up and any other questions you might have!

NASTAR at Bear Valley requires 2 liability waivers to be signed (good for the whole season).    The first is with NASTAR itself – if you have done NASTAR before, please go to their website ( and look up your race history, login to your profile.  If you have never done NASTAR, you need to “Register” on the website.  Ellen can help you with this; please find her at the Kiosk in the Sunroom. .  The 2nd waiver is for BVM/BVSF waiver is found at this link here.  It is an Adobe Sign document, when completed it will be forwarded to Ellen.
