In 2010, Jeanette Saylor a 54-year-old mother of two from Colorado was the NASTAR National Champion. At the NASTAR Nationals in Winter Park, Colorado, Saylor first won her age class, the Ladies 50-54 Platinum Division. Then in the Race of Champions, she posted the fastest time and was the overall winner.
In 2010, about 30% of NASTAR racers were women. While NASTAR doesn’t keep track of how many were moms, I think its a fair bet that many of the moms at NASTAR Nationals weren’t like Jeanette. They weren’t racing. They were schlepping skis for their kids and husbands.
