NASTAR/CCS Race Information


What is NASTAR ?

Developed in the late 1960’s, the National Standard Race program has been recognized as an ideal foundation for anyone interested in ski and snowboard competition.  More popularly referred to by its acronym, “NASTAR ” represents a nation-wide program that allows skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities to race head-to-head, as well as rank themselves against other competitors on a resort, regional, and national level. Best of all, anyone can enjoy the thrill of downhill racing on skis or a snowboard. In fact, the Otsego Club makes it easy with daily race training events, seasonal discounts, and on-hill sign up. You can register for free at, and join us at the next scheduled NASTAR event at the Otsego Club!

Club Championship Race Series Events

The Club Championship Series (CCS) is a cumulative point series that has six different events throughout the year. The CCS is based of on The Alpine World Cup events, including downhill, super giant slalom, giant slalom, slalom, combined (slalom/super GS), with the addition of a radar speed run.

NOTE: Based on feedback from our members, we will be adding an additional age group to this year’s CCS. Hopefully this will add to the competitive drive and passion of all racers competing in this year’s Series.

Age Groups:

RADAR RUN – 2 Runs, highest speed.

SLALOM – 2 runs, combined time

GIANT SLALOM – 2 runs, combined time

Points are awarded to the top 5 finishers in each class, and tallied at the end of the year to crown the fastest all-around men and women at the Otsego Club! The CCS is designed to accommodate all ages and is held on spectator friendly venues. See the events schedule for specific dates and times.
