Spirit Mountain will host the Nature Valley NASTAR Midwest Championships December 15 & 16. The event will include individual races on Saturday with participants divided into age and ability groups. On Sunday there will be a Race of Champions to determine the fastest racers using handicapped times and raw times. Sunday will also see teams of racers competing for supremacy. There will be separate divisions for family teams and teams of friends. The top three point gainers will be used to score points for the team but up to six people can be included on a team. NASTAR Team Points will be used to score teams so that age and gender can be used to handicap racers.
All racing will take place on the Blue Ruin trail. There will be a sponsor village, an awards party, live music, gift bags, Warren Miller movies, Pacesetting by four time Olympian and AJ Kitt, autograph sessions and more. This event is designed to help kick off your racing season and to connect with your racing friends.
