Ski Sundown Report for Weekend

Have you ever wanted to race down the slopes like a pro? Well at Ski Sundown you can! So today we’re going to take a peek at their Nastar program and how you can join in on the fun.

“Nastar is just such a great program because you can be four years old you can be ninety years old” says Kurt Johnson, Race Director at Ski Sundown “And it’s set up so everybody can try racing”

All you have to do is register online at where you’ll receive a registration number that you can use at any Nastar course in the country! But there’s only one course where you can race for free…

“Here at Ski Sundown we offer free Nastar and of 115 resorts that participate we’re the only one in the country that does that” explains Nastar Coordinator Monti Montana.

And you don’t have to be an experienced skier or snowboarder to hit the course.

“All you have to be able to do is turn. Turn and stop.” Says Montana. “Its basically for the public, it’s a very easy program to get into and um it’s just awesome”

In addition to improving your skills whether you’re a skier or snowboarder, Nastar racing also allows for a little friendly competition…

“We’ve had so much success with young families and once you get in a race course you kind of race again yourself that’s what makes it a beautiful thing and we get four year olds racing against their fathers and their mothers and they just have a blast” says Johnson.

Nastar course hours are on Sundays from 2:30-5:30pm, and on Thursdays from 6:30-9:30pm. And if you’re heading out on the slopes this weekend, conditions look perfect in southern New England with sun and clouds on Saturday with temperatures in the 30’s near 40’s, and the sunshine sticks around Sunday as temperatures climb near 50 degrees! Northern New England looks fantastic as well with temperatures in the 30’s on Saturday and 40’s on Sunday. A mix of sun and clouds expected both days.
