National Standard Race
Peek’n Peak offers experienced skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to participate in NASTAR, the National Standard Race. Participants race down the Race Arena Trail, competing against an established pacesetter time that is recorded each morning to ensure accurate rankings based upon current mountain conditions.
Participants will receive their race time upon reaching the bottom of the trail and will then be able to see how their race time ranks amongst national participants across America through the NASTAR website. 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 national pacesetters.
Based on their performance, participants have the opportunity to receive medals recognizing the caliber of their race time in comparison to national benchmarks and course records.
Participants may also compete on the Peek’n Peak NASTAR course for the opportunity to compete in the NASTAR National Championship held annually in Colorado.
Peek’n Peak is among a network of 100 resorts which offer the NASTAR program nationwide.
Participation in NASTAR is $6 for one run, or $10 for one day of unlimited runs.
