What makes Nub's Nob Alpine Racing (NNR) unique in the world of alpine race training programs is that we train more than any program, on the most optimum hills, under the direction of some of the most diverse and experienced coaches around. These resources allow us to address the individual needs of each racer. Nub’s Nob Ski Area is home to the dedicated race training hill “JB Arena” and the famous “Scarface”. JB Arena provides a home for our aspiring racers in a venue specifically designed to give them the training they need. Based on a model that has produced Olympic and FIS champions we installed a high speed rope tow enabling racers to build strength on their way up the hill while increasing the number of runs in the gates in a given training session. Available to our advanced racers, Scarface provides the most extreme alpine race training available in the Midwest, with more pitch and terrain changes than any other venue. NNR training is best suited for serious racers ages 14 and up.
NASTAR racing is included with all NNR regular season registrations on the days you train.
