Racing

SRC races on Thursdays on the Sugarbush NASTAR course, located on the Racer’s Edge trail. The race format is giant slalom, dual course. Each racer must race one run on each course.

The course is dedicated to the club on Thursdays, and the club race runs from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. Racing begins in January and ends in March.

Once a year, we run a feature race on the Legends Arena course, which is set up on the skier’s right of the Spring Fling course. This race is scheduled for February 16, this year.

Racers should register with the NASTAR web site and have a  NASTAR number. Registration is free and takes minutes.

Race fees

Please click the race fees tab at the top of this page.

Scoring

The SRC will use the NASTAR scoring and reporting system. Racers can log onto nastar.com and see how they rank nationwide against other racers in their age group and race category.

Additionally, the club has an internal club handicap system that is used for club awards and bragging rights. Internal club scoring applies to both individuals and club teams. For details on the internal club handicapping system please click the handicap scoring  tab at the top of this page.

Race status/cancellations/postponements

In the case of race cancellation or postponement:

  • You will receive an email from SRC advising of cancellation or postponement.
  • The club members who will be set up in Gate House lodge to collect “day of” race registrations will be notified and will know the race status of the day.
  • Lincoln Peak Guest Services will announce over the Gate House loudspeaker system if the race is cancelled. Please do NOT call Guest Services to ask about race status, thanks.
  • The home page has a new “Tweet” banner section that will be updated with the race status. If you are a Twitter user,  follow @sugarbushrc and you’ll receive the tweets directly as well.
  • The assumption is that parties will go on regardless of racing, but the notifications will also indicate that.

Race schedule

Don’t miss the après-ski party following every SRC race that begins at 4:30pm at one of the great restaurants in the Valley. Enjoy good company, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, great door prizes, and get a first glimpse of the race results for that day.

Race clinics

If you are new to racing, or just want to polish your skills, clinics can really help.

We must have a minimum of five participants to run a clinic.
Please email sugarbushracing@gmail.com if you are interested.
Also note that if you are not a paid registered club member the price of the clinic will be higher. All will be 1/2 day, AM, and run for approximately 3 hours.  We will finalize starting times before the clinics begin, but you can assume that clinics will end by noon.  Emails are sent prior to the clinics which confirm dates, times and costs.
If you have other racing questions that the website cannot answer, please feel free to email sugarbushracing@gmail.com  Also once coaches are assigned, we will share that information as well.

NASTAR

NASTAR (NAtional STAndard Race)

NASTAR (NAtional STAndard Race) is the world’s largest known recreational ski and snowboard race program. It allows racers of all ages and abilities, through a handicap system, to compare themselves with one another and with the national champion, regardless of where and when they race. NASTAR also holds regional and national championships each year, awarding medals in each age and class.

NASTAR handicap calculations

The National Standard is the Par Time or the “0” handicap which every racer competes against when they race NASTAR. The “0” handicap is typically set by a U.S. Ski Team racer or former champion. Runners-up establish handicaps against the winner by their lag time percentage. These ‘traveling pacesetters’ compete against pacesetters from each NASTAR resort at sanctioned Regional Pacesetting Trials jprior to the start of the following season.

These events enable pacesetters from each individual resort to establish their own certified handicap against the national champion’s Par Time or “0” handicap. The resort pacesetters use their certified handicap to set the Par Time at their local NASTAR course each racing day, and in turn give each participant who races at their resort a handicap that is referenced to the national champion. The Par Time is approximately the time the national NASTAR champion would have raced the course had he been there that day.

Every skier, regardless of ability or disability, can ski with a time referenced against the national champion, corrected for the specific resort and course conditions and his/her level. Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze designations are based on performance in several races, relative to each racer’s age, gender and ability group.

Handicap scoring

32708773The classes are divided using the NASTAR race class system and combining classes if the numbers are small. This resulted in two race classes for women – F1 and F2, and four classes for men – M1, M2, M3, and M4.

For each race, class rankings will be based on combined times adjusted using a three race rolling average of your handicaps. I call this the Discounted Time. For the first race we will start with a clean slate for race handicaps. The Discounted Time for your first race will be calculated after the second race of the season, using the average handicap achieved from the first and second races. The Discounted Time for the second race will be calculated using your average handicap from the first race (this makes it harder to sand-bag).

Once Discounted Times are calculated, points are awarded in each class based on the number of people in the class who raced that day with the lowest Discounted Time getting the maximum points – which is the number of racers in that class that day (if seven racers raced in a class, the maximum points for that race would be seven for that class). Also, if you show up and give it a go but don’t finish both courses, you will be awarded at least one point. So the key to doing well in your class is to show up at all the races, and ski a little faster than your average handicap from the previous races. We also have what we call the Speed Class (or The Fast and the Furious Class) for both men and women. The top ten combined times for both men and women are awarded points from 10 to 1. It gives the speed demons a chance to battle it out, head-to-head.
