Compare your speed against skiers and boarders across the country in every age group. In NASTAR, racers compete against the clock, with the potential of earning medals and qualifying for national events. NASTAR Racing is held Saturdays and Sundays at BlackJack Resort, Bessemer, Michigan, and Thursday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays at Pine Mountain Resort, Iron Mountain, Michigan. At Norway Mountain, Norway, Michigan, five different racing teams train and compete in events with Team Norway Racing.
Karla’s post is a good one. Many think because our ski resorts are vertically challenged no good ski talent can arise form the region. Lyndsey Vonn proves that is false. Still, we have world class Nordic skiing in the region with jumps in Iron Mountain MI, Copper Peak MI, and in Iola and of course the Birkenbeiner X-country ski race. Plus, who needs vertical for events involving ice skating or curling?
