Colorado Photographer shoots the NASTAR National Championships in Aspen, Colorado

I have been shooting the NASTAR National Championships, for SKI Magazine / NASTAR, for a few years now, and it is always fun to photograph this event.  However, this year was even more exciting, as Olympians, Ted Ligety, Steve Nyman, & Stacey Cook, fresh from the Olympics were racing as Pacesetters.  The race takes place at: Snowmass at the Spider Sabich Race Area.  To see all of our images from the event, visit our online gallery.

NASTAR National Championships

NASTAR National ChampionshipsFor those of you that are not familiar with NASTAR, NASTAR, is the largest recreational ski race program in the world.  NASTAR was developed by SKI Magazine in 1968 to provide recreational racers with an opportunity to compete and to compare their scores to friends and family members regardless of when and where they race. The NASTAR handicap system is a standardized scoring program that provides participants with a tangible number that represents their ability. The NASTAR program has a successful partnership with the U.S. Ski Team as its premier youth racing feeder program.
