WELCOME TO NAASF
North American Airline Ski Federation (NAASF) is an organization comprised of Teams or Clubs from virtually all of the airlines in North American (American, Delta, United, Fedex, Southwest, NetJet, Skywest, etc). These Teams/Clubs are comprised of airline employees/retirees and their families. NAASF currently sanctions three ski weeks each season at a variety of resorts around North America where the member Team/Clubs compete in Snowboard and Ski Racing, Partying, and Free Skiing. Those that want to race have the opportunity, but those that don't are welcome to come cheer for your favorite team or just enjoy the mountain at your own pace. The NAASF Ski Weeks offer some of the most affordable ski/riding possible. As a general rule, the NAASF contracted rates offer slope side or near slope side lodging for under $75/person/night, Lift Ticket Prices for about 50% of rack rate, and a variety of discounts on rentals and purchases around the resorts. It is rare that you will find a less expensive way to have a ski week. NAASF charges a registration fee for the week which is under $100. This allows you the discounted lodging, lift tickets, discounts, and allows you to attend all the week's events/parties. It is a bargain for what you are paying. All of the NAASF Weeks are "Family Friendly". The evening parties are "adult" entertainment, but families are welcome to ski, race, and enjoy the week. Baby sitting services are available in most resorts so the adults can join in the evening activities.

Heavenly Conditions - 01/26/2018
For those of you worried that snow conditions are bad at Heavenly, fear not. From reports I’m getting from the mountain sales office, the race department and Michael Williams from AA who lives across the lake, the snow is fine. Mike says from the top of the gondola and up they have great snow, below its thinner but they are running races this coming weekend and the weekend before our arrival. For racing the plan is to run both A and B SL races on World Cup on Wednesday and A and B GS races on their new race venue Stagecoach on Thursday. Don’t forget to register on www.naasf.com and book your stay with Forest Suites. I’m looking forward to another great week at Heavenly and to seeing everyone....
Winter is coming - 10/08/2017
I hope everyone had a great summer. Here we are in October and winter is rapidly approaching. Snow has begun falling and I'm hoping we'll have a great snow winter like last year. The December clinic's are only 2 months away and the first NAASF week only 3... Steamboat is hosting us again this year and they always run a fantastic week for us. Billy Kidd is always around and usually shows up at one of our parties and NAASF and the NAASF Foundation will continue our tradition of making a donation to the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and supporting them in developing our future Olympians.
This summer we made some changes to our rule book and cleaned up some items. Amber Stockhausen will have the book updated shortly.
After 16 years as B TD, Steve Poszony decided to let younger blood take over and Brian Palmer stepped up. We also filled the scorer position, Jason Becker takes on that job. Thanks for stepping up.
We are continuing to push online registration through www.naasf.com and John Stockhausen has been improving the product. If you haven't created a profile yet, please do so and then it's a simple process to register for each ski week. Once you arrive at the resort you'll pay the registration fee and purchase lift tickets like before, but the resort should have all your information.
For those of us that race, last year showed how quickly we get the race results. John posts it within minutes of receiving the scores from the race department.
This season I'm hoping to see lots of new faces as all the airlines are hiring and recruiting new members and hopefully this will double or triple attendance. Please help spread the word to your coworkers.
Lodging info for Steamboat is available and booking is open. Here are the lift ticket prices:
Lift Prices 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day
2018 Rate: $145 $290 $435 $580 $725
Airline Discount: 10% 10% 10% 10% 10%

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!!
