Stowe Mountain- Vermont
Annual Sugar Slalom
April 3 & 4, 2010
Celebrate spring on skis. Join the fun in the MMSC Sugar Slalom. Held annually in Stowe since 1940, the Sugar Slalom is the most recognized alpine ski race event in the region. Open to USSA licensed racers ages 9 and up, this race attracts some of the best talent in the East and is a great opportunity to lower USSA points late in the season. On day two, the Sugar Slalom is open to anyone over 21 years of age wishing to be a part in the weekend’s festivities.
Originating as a celebration of the arrival of spring and the tapping of maple trees, the Sugar Slalom is held in a Mardi gras atmosphere complete with music, barbecue on the hill, fantastic ski racing and festive costumes. To top it all, the race also features a unique Vermont treat - maple syrup on snow, donuts and pickles at the finish.

National Ski Areas Association
The National Ski Areas Association is the trade association for ski area owners and operators. It represents 326 alpine resorts that account for more than 90 percent of the skier/snowboarder visits nationwide. Additionally, it has 400 supplier members who provide equipment, goods and services to the mountain resort industry.

NSAA analyzes and distributes ski industry statistics; produces annual conferences and trade shows; produces a bimonthly industry publication and is active in state and federal government affairs. The association also provides educational programs and employee training materials on industry issues including OSHA, ADA and NEPA regulations and compliance; environmental laws and regulations; state regulatory requirements; aerial tramway safety; and resort operations and guest service.

NSAA was established in 1962 and was headquartered in Springfield, Mass. In 1989 NSAA merged with SIA (SnowSports Industries America) and moved to McLean, Va. The merger was dissolved in 1992 and NSAA was relocated to Lakewood, Colo., because of its central geographic location. NSAA is located in the same office building as the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the National Ski Patrol in Lakewood, Colo., a suburb west of Denver.
