— The epicenter of amateur ski racing, the NASTAR National Championships, is returning to Steamboat Springs this winter, running March 24-27.

The event also took place in Steamboat Springs from 2008 through 2009, attracting hundreds of racers from across the country to compete in races at Steamboat Ski Area.

NASTAR gives the every-day skier the chance to race, and they do in a big way.

NASTAR records more than 165,000 race days every year at 115 ski resorts. To qualify for nationals, skiers have several options. They can earn a top-10 national ranking in their age, gender and skill division. They can also earn a top-5 ranking in their state, earn the top ranking at their resort or qualify at a regional championship.
