    2019 Nationals


    OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. (May 31, 2018) – U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today that the Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR National Championships will return to Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows April 3-7, 2019. With U.S. Alpine Championships and Noram Finals wrapping up in March, the early April dates will allow for maximum attendance from U.S. Ski Team members and ideal timing for good snow cover at Squaw Valley.

    The passion and dedication of the NASTAR community was on full display at last year’s Nationals at Squaw Valley, complimented by steep, fast courses, celebrity pacesetter appearances from the likes of Daron Rahlves and Marco Sullivan and a wide range of entertainment options at the resort and beyond.

    “Squaw Valley showed such dedication to putting on a great event for our racers last year, said Director of NASTAR Bill Madsen. “We are excited to bring the Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR National Championships back to Squaw Valley and once again provide the NASTAR nation with the opportunity to experience western spring skiing in all of its glory.”

    Squaw Valley sees an average of six feet of snow in the month of March, making early April a prime time for a racing event. In addition to great skiing conditions, the Tahoe area has plenty of activities for the NASTAR individual and family alike. Squaw Valley offers activities like snow tubing, mini-snowmobiling and a free Olympic Museum accessed by the scenic Aerial Tram to High Camp at 8,200 feet. The stunning blue water of Lake Tahoe is just a 10 minute drive from the resort. The North Lake Tahoe and Truckee areas have a diverse range of dining options, museums, activities, events and nightlife.

    “Everyone at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows is looking forward to hosting our second year of NASTAR Nationals,” said James Clifford, Squaw Valley events services manager. “We saw a record-breaking year in participation in the NASTAR race course at the resort, which tells us that interest in our region is growing rapidly. The season-long course is a fun, easy way for skiers and riders of all ability levels to try out racing. The stoke level of the NASTAR athletes is something that brings amazing energy to both of our mountains and we can’t wait to entertain these passionate racers for yet another year.”

    NASTAR participants qualify for the championships by earning a top ten national ranking or a top five state ranking within their age, gender and ability group by February 19, 2019. Racers can also qualify by earning a top ranking at their favorite resort or at the Regional Championships. In addition to the Alpine Ski division, the NASTAR National Championships will also host snowboard, telemark and physically challenged disciplines. Just a 45-minute drive from the Reno-Tahoe International (RNO) airport via all-weather Interstate 80, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows can be easily reached on nonstop flights daily from 20 U.S. cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York and more.

    Lodging discounts at Squaw

    Does anyone remember what lodging discount % Nastar negotiated last year at Squaw? I duplicated this question via email just now to Bill Madsen asking what Nastar lodging % discount was offered at Squaw in 2018 and if it might be same next year..

    I called the Squaw Valley Lodge and they said that the discounts had not been contracted with Nastar yet. They suggested that I go ahead and book the reservation and that I call back later and they would apply the discount then.

    So I did.......
