The Council supports racers of all ages and abilities. Currently there are 3 to 4 races per year. Different clubs sponsor races as well as the Council.
The races are similar to NASTAR race courses and are designed specifically so that all abilities are able to participate. You must sign up for a specific category before the races, and they are: Juniors (under 18), Open Class (anyone can enter), Veterans (40+), Super Veterans (55+). In other words, you have the option of racing in the open class (more competitive) or racing in your age category.
Most races begin at 10:00 AM. and are over by approx. 11:30 AM. Registration begins at 8:30 AM in the base lodge.
You must notify the club race chairman if you intend to race (and under what category). Pre-registration is not required but recommended as it helps us to plan more accurately.
Following the race, Awards are presented as well as a small apres ski party.
***IMPORTANT*** All racers are required to wear helmets!

The purpose of the Council is to promote interest and participation in recreational and competitive amateur skiing. Presently the council consists of 13 ski clubs with over 4,000 members. The council members enjoy skiing, snowboarding, tele skiing, racing, biking, hiking, camping, golf, roller blading, along with many more activities. Our member clubs ski here in the Northeast, as well as all over North America and the Globe. The council has special promotional days set-up with a large group of ski areas to help promote skiing and snowboarding. The Council is completely run by volunteers from the different member clubs.
