This is the place if you want to race. Ski Sundown has a way for everyone who wants to run gates to get into the action. For kids we offer Race Team Development designed to introduce youngsters to racing skills. When your child is ready to progress to the competitive level, the Ski Sundown Ski Team has you covered with U.S.S.A. sanctioned events and ranking. For adults the Connecticut Industrial Ski Council’s Tuesday night race league promotes camaraderie through team competition. Whether you are a seasoned race veteran of any age or just want to see what it is like to run a race course, NASTAR invites you to rip it up.
