    Looking for racing? There is a nationwide race program called NASTAR, where people at ski resorts around the country can participate in races, then be seeded nationally. Around March-ish, if you are one of the top three in your age group at your resort, you will be invited to the NASTAR nationals, located in Steamboat Springs, CO.

    Good luck and let me know if you've got any questions.

    Go to your local / favorite ski area and inquire about ski racing or freestyle competitions at the ski school. NASTAR is a racing program available to amatures, but for more serious competition check out the Unites States Ski and Snowboard Association. They manage the US ski team.

    The Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding.
