Why is NASTAR moving to a membership model with Outside+?
For many years, NASTAR has largely been supported by sponsorship and resort partners, but prior to COVID, NASTAR started seeing a yearly decline in both, which has created a challenging business model for long-term sustainability, and we want to change this with your help.
This year, NASTAR has chosen to move to a membership model to sustain our program for future generations. With your support, we look forward to continuing to bring greater awareness to the sport, while motivating participants of all ages to get involved in alpine racing.
Historically, most resorts charge a per run fee for NASTAR course usage, but Alterra Mountain Co., parent company of Ikon Pass, now includes free NASTAR racing for guests at all existing courses for the remainder of the season and will be adding new resorts next year. This partnership allows pass holders at participating resorts to do as many runs as they like to continuously improve their times and prepare for Nationals.
As a NASTAR member, what will the Outside+ membership provide access to?
Moving forward, you will need a paid Outside+ membership to:
- Get full access to all historical NASTAR results and rankings online
- Be eligible for the NASTAR National Championships in Aspen Snowmass on April 3-8, 2023
Please note: Only one Outside+ membership is required per household—you will be able to share your account with your spouse and/or child(ren) and register them for Nationals.
In addition to unlocking all things NASTAR, Outside+ includes benefits across the 30+ brands in the Outside Network—from streaming access to U.S. World Cup ski and snowboard events (and 50 Warren Miller films!) to premium GPS apps and unlimited digital content, including skimag.com.
