NASTAR is a nationwide recreational race program open to the public — all ages & abilities are welcome!

Bear Valley SnowSports Foundation, in cooperation with Skyline Bear Valley, is proud to be one of just two resorts in California hosting the program. 

NASTAR provides the opportunity for skiers, boarders and telemarkers of all ages and abilities to compete with friends, family and other racers around the country.

NASTAR is also a great way to work on personal improvement.  Participants compete within their age group and gender to win platinum, gold, silver or bronze medals.

Snowmass, Colorado will host the 2021 NASTAR  Nationals April 5-10, 2021; participants qualify to compete in the NASTAR National Championships when they win a medal on ONE or more race days!
