Nastar Training Course: The NASTAR dual race-training course is an excellent way to warm up for your race. Race in a 'pro race' format and challenge your friends! A digital display shows your time up to the hundredth of a second at the finish. Discounted multi-run cards available at the course. NASTAR training course is open daily from 10:00am until 3:00pm for $1 per run.

Group Racing: Private racing on your own course is offered by the Steamboat Race Department. Ski Clubs, families, schools, or any group may book the NASTAR race venue for private group events. Combine this with a Bar-B-Q lunch at the finish line and you'll have a special Steamboat memory. Group Racing may be booked through Steamboat Group Sales (year-round) or directly through the Competition Services office (November through mid April) starting at $300 minimum per race, or $15 per person.

Elite Training/ Lane Space: Steamboat offers lane space for team training. Lane space is available upon request for visiting racers to hone their skills on FIS homologated venues for two hour sessions of GS or SL. This space will be sectioned off from the public skiing for teams to set and manage their own courses. Some restrictions apply and arrangements for this service can be secured through the Competition Services office (November through mid April), and starts at $200 per session.
