    2019 venue?

    Any speculation on the location of the 2019 Nationals? Back at Squaw? I'm trying to plan our 2019 trip out west and would like to attend.

    Johnny:

    NASTAR did confirm that they have a 2-year deal with Squaw Valley and we'll be returning to the resort for the 2019 National Championships.

    Cheers,

    The dates haven't been firmed up yet but should be either the third or fourth week.

    I think Squaw Valley is an awesome mountain. Due to the base elevation 6200 feet, the weather conditions are much more challenging than my home state of Colorado.

    We had similar Spring conditions at Park City and Steamboat Springs (base elevation 6900 ft for both). Some warmer temps, with slight rain and wet slushy snow, at times.

    Whereas my home hill of Copper Mountain - base elevation sits above 9700 feet. Snowmass 8700 ft & Winter Park base at 9100 feet. Not complaining, just sayin'...

    The California weather was more than interesting. The driving rain on Weds/Thursday was a huge PITA. And then they got FEET of SNOW at altitude. The race crews did a fantastic job to move us all to the lower mountain & salt the courses. Now the courses were firm and held up like a ROCKSTAR!!! But there were a lot of last minute changes and a good bit of stay late or hurry up and wait. Oh bother :o)

    As our buddy and 19-year NASTAR National Pacesetter AJ (Alpine Jet) Kitt says:
    "Dude, it's an outdoor sport"..... And it is!

    Now it's off to the summer for us all.

    Be well my friends.
