DXC will be holding the Wednesday Night Race Series this season for 2022-23!
Racing is open to all ages and abilities! DXC encourages anyone and everyone to participate. Whether you’re a seasoned racer or someone who is just learning how to ski, come out and have some fun on Wednesday nights.
Race distance varies week to week. Usually 4k to 6k distance. Race technique will vary between Classic and Freestyle from week to week, depending on snow conditions and weather.
Wednesday nights, 6:30PM; Series starts December 7; Racing will begin on Wednesday, December 8, and will continue each Wednesday until February 22, 2023, dependent on snow conditions. Later Wednesdays in March may be used as “make-up” days for races canceled due to snow conditions, cold weather, etc.
Races venues will rotate between Spirit Mountain Nordic Center, Snowflake Nordic Center, Upper Spirit Campground Loop, Lester Park, and Cloquet/Pine Valley. The first race of the year will take place at Spirit Mountain Nordic Center in Freestyle technique on Dec 7, 2022.
What you need:
- A Trail Pass for the race trail, if one is required.
- A completed Wednesday Night Race Series registration (this gets you into the whole series with one signed waiver; race once or every time with just one registration)
- A headlamp. Upper parts of Spirit Mountain Nordic Center and between lights at other trails might make a headlamp useful.
All skiers will receive points for their position in each race. At the end of the season, the top man and woman, and most consistent man and woman will receive a prize.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday nights!
All racers must complete a Wednesday Night Race Series Registration. This single registration will work for any and all races in the series.
If you choose NOT to register electronically above, please fill out the hard copy waiver below and bring it with you to your first race. (electronic is easier at the above button...)
