NASTAR recreational racing returns to Bear Valley this season after a very successful inaugural season that saw Bear Valley host more NASTAR race starts than any other California resort. Again, we plan to hold over 20 races this coming season.
This program provides the opportunity for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and levels to compete with friends, family and other racers around the country. The NASTAR handicap system provides racers with a handicap number that represents their ability. Your will be able to see your stats and how you rank nationally on the NASTAR website. Based on performance racers can win medals and qualify to compete in the NASTAR National Competition each year.
