McDonald's Twilight Nights Every Wednesday in January!

The Nordic Center may be closed, but the McDonald's Twilight Night Series CONTINUES ON! This is your chance to get on some some and play. Calling all Nordic skiers, fat bikers, snowshoers, and Wednesday warriors, the McDonald's Twilight Nights Is BACK and better than ever starting next week! Join us for stoke and high fives every Wednesday in January at the base of Purgatory.

Choose Your Weapon!

 Twilight Nights is not your typical Wednesday night out. Set at the base of Purgatory Resort, 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 gapers at Purgy’s.

What, Wednesday Nights? 

Yes, the races will be held on four consecutive Wednesday nights. The final race in the series, on the opening night of Snowdown, will be a special “triathlon” format.  Sign up as an individual, or throw your name in a hat to be matched up with teammates.

Race dates:  Jan 10  |  Jan 17  |  Jan 24  |  Jan 31

Just $10 per race.  Do just one, or do them all.  We will tally points throughout the series, and there will be prizes for individual race winners and series points winners.  We’ll also have plenty of giveaways at each race.


Registration:  5 – 5:45pm in Purgy’s.

Race:  6pm

Post-race festivities:  Drinks, prizes, and good times in Purgy’s right after the races.
