Wolf Chute

One of our narrow chutes, Wolf Chute descends quickly from skier’s right on Wolf Ridge and merges with Timberwolf Trail.

Popular with our more advanced guests, Big Brave is the center piece of our north facing slopes. A great place to watch the action is from The Lift Bar & Grill sun deck.

Brave Chute

This chute is a great place to show off your advanced skills.

Little Brave

Located under Lift #1, Little Brave is another advanced run that is steep and fast. The farthest west of our steep central slopes, Little Brave is a great run when we have fresh powder.

Wild Deer

Our north facing slopes begin to mellow as we move to the west, Wild Deer is the perfect pitch to feel like you are flying down the slopes.

Eagle Ridge

A mellow run with a steep knoll in the center, Eagle Ridge is a great place to be on a sunny day.

NASTAR

ABOUT NASTAR

NASTAR stands for NAtional STAndard Race and is the largest public grassroots ski racing program in the world. Founded in 1968, NASTAR gives recreational racers an opportunity to compete and compare their scores to friends and family regardless of when and where they race using the NASTAR handicap system.

NASTAR was developed by SKI Magazine in 1968 and now boasts more than 100,000 races at over 100 resorts around the country.  Racers are scored with a handicap system that provides participants with a tangible number, or handicap, that represents their ability against U.S. Ski Team athletes and pacesetters. 

Today, NASTAR is operated by U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association. Through this association with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard and U.S. Ski Team, NASTAR is bringing greater awareness to the sport and value to the industry while motivating participants of all ages to get involved in ski racing.
