U.S. Skibob Team
Our goal is to build a team to compete in the United States as well as in the Federation Internationale de Skibob (FISB) World Cup series races and World Championships in Europe.
We encourage anyone interested to begin racing in the 'snowbike' division on NASTAR courses offered at NASTAR-participating resorts that allow skibobs. The NASTAR format allows racers of all ages and abilities to compare their race results to other competitors across the country, regardless of when and where they race, through a handicap system.
Register for NASTAR and select 'US Skibob Team' as your Club Team. Then, race at your local Nastar resort. Those who qualify for the NASTAR National Championships can join us as a team in Snowmass, CO, April 2023. Read on to learn more about our coaches, athletes and volunteers. Contact Us to see how you can become a part of the action!
Did you know that the United States hosted the Skibob World Championships in Reno, NV in 1971? The U.S. National Skibob Team competed internationally in the 60's and 70's and again in 2010.
