RACING INFORMATION

13/14 Racing Information

Perfect North Slopes offers a variety of training and practice opportunities for racers of all aspirations and abilities.  If you are interested in becoming a racer, aspire to improve your skills through the gates, or just want to participate occasionally in a downhill race, then we have races and lesson programs to fit your needs.  Racing and gate instruction usually occurs on Intermission, which on occasion may be closed to the public for exclusive race participant use; please check our News and Snow Report for updates of the status of Intermission. 

NEW for the 13/14 season: All race programs include a NASTAR season pass!

Cost of races or race instruction does not include lift ticket or equipment. Racers must be able to ride chairlift by themselves and ski intermediate terrain confidently and competently. There are no makeup classes, and training does occur on holidays. Participants must have a racing waiver on file each season, which can be downloaded here.
