How do I get involved in Masters Racing?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
  A cursory google search has left me with nothing. Trying to find some info on leagues etc... to get involved in some fun, not too serious racing. I am a novice racer but, a decent skier. Located in NW Oregon, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hoodoo is running a City Leauge Friday nights and NASTAR. Good way to get started. Also Race clinics. Bachelor has a NASTAR set most of the week.

Know of anything at Meadows? Hoodoo would be good too.

Google USSA Masters. That should take you to the national site which will list the local chapters (not sure about PNW). A national licence is required, although you can race two events on a temporary licence. Typical GS course sets will be more challenging and interesting than most beer league sets. Unless you have a racing backround, be prepared to be humbled and you may end up DFL, but ya gotta start somewhere!

Being a Novice Racer you might want to start off w/ City League /NASTAR. Masters is for the experienced gate bashers like John mentioned.

  Well I'll probabaly try the beer league since I just want to do it for fun. However, I have done the PSIA GS camp the last few years in a row and can carry decent speed down the hill so who knows...   Thanks for the info!
