Racing

Perfect North Slopes offers a variety of training, practice, and racing opportunities for skiers 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 NASTAR race, then we have lesson programs to fit your needs.  Racing and gate instruction usually occur 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. 

Continuing from previous seasons: All race programs include a NASTAR season pass!

Cost of races or race instruction does not include lift ticket or equipment. Racers must be at least 8 years old, 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.

Doodles Race (previously known as "Hot Shots") is a six-week program designed to help your child embrace skiing for a lifetime of healthy and competitive fun.  Our professional instructors are highly trained in helping your child excel in their skiing and racing techniques.  In this progressive lesson program, your child will build the fundamental skill set that will help them master the race hill and take their skiing skills to the next level.  

The Race Doodles class is designed for both new and experienced racers who are interested in establishing or improving their racing skills. Participants will improve their general skiing ability, become more comfortable on a race course, and learn techniques used by the US Ski Team.  Training will consist of technical free skiing with an instructor, as well as gate training.  With participants grouped by similar skill levels, more experienced racers may use this as a stepping stone from recreational into competitive racing.

The first classes will start the week of January 6th, 2019. Doodles runs for 6 consecutive weeks on your pre-selected day and time.

Season Passes and rentals are not included with the Doodles Race Program and must be purchased separately.
