Finding Good Teams
Welcome to EpicSki. It's always good to see more racers posting on the board.
What is your NASTAR handicap? What was your points level in USSA in what division? best USSA finishes at the major races - divisional championships? JO's? Regional FIS? US Nationals? US NorAms? Which USCSA team did you race for? what were your finishes at USCSA Nationals GS SL?
You may have to prove yourself in the first year by getting on a good team and finishing well at the Championship Finals in the Nashoba Valley Adult Team Racing League or at the Great Race in the Wachusett Mountain Corporate Night League. With good results in hand, you may be able to attract a potential sponsor with some initiative on your part.

There was a good article in Ski Magazine about the experience of a former Olympian (Carrie Sheinberg 8 year U.S. Ski Team member) in the Wachusett Mountain Corporate Night League http://www.skimag.com/skimag/feature...767561,00.html
FINDING GOOD TEAMS:
You may be able to use the NASTAR results to identify the top individuals/competition level/most competitive night. Once you click on an individual's name, you will be able to see the Club Team name and click on that name for details on the other team members.
Here is the link to the 3/6/05 Great Race results from Wachusett Mountain http://www.nastar.com/index.jsp?page...roup&year=2005
Here is the link to all of the Wachusett Mountain Races http://www.nastar.com/index.jsp?page...28&year=200 5
where you can pick out the Night League races and then sort by age & gender category to find the most competitive night.
WEBSITE FOR NASHOBA VALLEY ADULT TEAM RACE LEAGUE RESULTS?
Perhaps some of the Nashoba Valley competitors could post the address of website(s) that have the results from the Nashoba Valley Adult Team Race League. I would think that the ski area and/or some of the teams may post these results somewhere.
