NASTAR® is the acronym for the NAtional STAndard Race and is the largest public grassroots ski race program in the world. More than 95,000 NASTAR participants compete throughout the season to win platinum, gold, silver and bronze medals in their age and gender groups. In addition, participants are ranked in their ability group and the top ranked racers qualify to compete in the NASTAR National Championships. NASTAR was developed by SKI Magazine in 1968 to provide recreational racers with an opportunity to compete and to compare their scores to friends and family members regardless of when and where they race. The NASTAR handicap system is a universal scoring system that provides participants with a tangible number that represents their ability. The NASTAR.com web site records each participants stats and ranks each racer at the host resort, in their state of residence and nationally.

Gunstock offers NASTAR racing on Saturdays and Sundays, and mid-week during holiday periods. Participants can run the course on the Ramrod Race trail from 10AM to 3PM.   

Results from the day are available in the Welcome Center after 3:30PM.  Participants can pick-up their winning medal for their best result of the day. (Please, just one type of medal per person each season!)

Daily fees are paid at the race start.  A valid lift ticket or season pass is also required. Register online 24 hours in advance at www.nastar.com or at Gunstock Mountain Resort. Get your race results within 24 hours online and compare yourself to the US Ski Team or your best friend!
