NASTAR is the acronym for the National Standard Race and is the largest public recreational grassroots ski racing program in the world.

Developed in 1968, NASTAR provides a fun, competitive and easily accessible recreational ski racing program that, through the development of a handicap system, allows skiers of all ages and abilities to compare themselves against their friends, family members and the U.S. Ski Team regardless of when and where they race. Visit for more information.
