Hi thaar. It does cost to race, but very reasonable. $12 gives you all the runs you want to take for the entire day. Nice means of training, actually.
Easy to enter,,, you just sign up right at the start shack. If you've already signed up on NASTAR.com, remember to bring your registration #, then all you do is fill in your number on the race registration form at the start and give the guy/girl your money. Easy. For those who haven't registered prior, you do it right at the start shack,,,, just fill in the needed info on the race registration form.
No, it doesn't matter if you've never raced. The courses are pretty basic, and the slopes they are set on are not that steep. They're a very easy means of getting your feet wet in a race course. Anyone can do it. Seriously. I introduced a never-ever to it last year. She was scared to the point I almost had to literally push her out of the start gate.
Now she's in the dang NASTAR course all the time,,, having acquired her Gold level, and gunning for platinum. It's addictive.
