McDonald's Twilight Nights Snowdown Triathlon

  • Purgatory Resort 1 Skier Place Durango, CO, 81301 United States (map)

WARNING: Twilight Nights is not your typical Wednesday night out.

Set at the base of Purgatory, this short track race series is for nordic skiers, fat bikers and snowshoers to battle it out in the dark, up and down punishing terrain and around quick turns while being cheered on by the visiting gapers sitting outside at Purgy’s. If you like normal, stay home and watch Netflix.

January 31 is the Twilight Nights Triathlon, an official Snowdown event which surely will add an interesting twist to an already twisted event. It is also a FULL MOON - Come out and have fun under the moonlight!  Sign up as an individual or put your name in a hat to be randomly assigned to a team of kindred spirits. For all four events, relax and socialize at Purgy’s post mahem.
