NASTAR at Mount Sunapee Resort


What is NASTAR?

NASTAR is the acronym for the National Standard Race. Developed in 1968, NASTAR is the largest public recreational grass-roots ski race program in the world.

NASTAR’s mission is to provide a fun, competitive and easily accessible recreational ski racing program. Through the development of a handicap system it allows skiers of all ages and abilities a means to compare themselves against their friends, family members and the U.S. Ski Team regardless of when and where they race.

How does it work?

If you have already registered for NASTAR, simply give the starter your NASTAR registration number.

If you are new to NASTAR, or have forgotten you number, go to to register, or search your name to retrieve your NASTAR number.

If you choose to register at the NASTAR course at Mount Sunapee, you will be asked to fill out a registration form. Your information will be transferred to when the day’s race is uploaded. At this time you will be assigned a unique NASTAR registration number, and you can track your results at

NASTAR Championships

Participants that are ranked in the top 5 in their age & gender category in their division at any NASTAR resort will qualify for the National Championships.

Resort Rankings are also used to qualify snowboarders & telemark skiers for the National Championships.  Participants receive a Resort Ranking at each resort where they race after completing just one NASTAR race.
Ties are broken by the total number of days raced.
