The ASRA series of races is open to all recreational skiers, regardless of ability. Whether you compete as an individual or on a ski club team, the ASRA SERIES has what you're looking for. Good courses, great people, and lots of fun! Events are held in various regions, giving skiers the opportunity to race, and to meet new people. Experts climb to new levels, and beginning racers mingle with the "top dawgs". Everyone learns new techniques and picks up equipment and tuning tips. Ability levels of participants range from intermediate to super elite; age groups from 3 to 80+.
Regional races feature medals for age-groups, and the events have random prize drawings so you may win sponsor prizes even if you're not in the medals. Competitors can also accrue points for season awards and the opportunity to participate in the ASRA Nationals.
Nationals Weekend is held in March at a major U.S. ski resort... this year we will be at West Mtn, NY. Random-drawing prizes will be awarded throughout the weekend. Nationals is set up so that skiers race against others in their age groups on Friday and Sunday, and by ability class on Saturday. The ability groups are based on how the racers fared throughout the season. There are ability classes for men and women, and the youngsters can race too! Nationals Weekend also features great partying and doorprizes!
Annual ASRA Membership is not required to participate in regional events, however, members do receive additional discounts at select ski shops and lodging facilities as well as saving on lift/entry costs. Members also accrue points necessary to compete in ASRA Championship events.
