Welcome to the 2019/20 Season of Nighthawks Racing at Eldora!
On six consecutive Wednesday nights, from late January through early March, Eldora hosts a one-of-a-kind night-race series featuring simultaneous alpine, uphill, Nordic, and snowshoe racing.
All pre- and post-race activities will take place upstairs in the Indian Peaks Lodge. All racers (alpine, uphill, Nordic, and snowshoe) will check in and boot-up upstairs in IP and then head to their respective start lines. Competitors are welcome to leave bags there, enjoy our food and drinks, and then cheer each other on at the post-race awards.

FAQ: Do I need to buy a lift-access ticket or slope-access ticket beyond the registration fee? A: For Nordic, snowshoe, and uphill racers—plus alpine racers who have Eldora or Ikon passes—NO ticket is required beyond the race entry fee. For alpine racers who DO NOT have Eldora or Ikon passes, a $10 lift ticket is required to ride the Poma lift on Chute. These may be purchased upstairs in the Indian Peaks Lodge between 4:00 and 5:30 PM on race days only.
