The sport of biathlon combines two skills: ski endurance and rifle marksmanship. It also teaches firearm safety along with skiing and shooting skills. We are currently offering biathlon for kids age 10 and older. As our main focus is on safety and shooting, we ask that our participants also register for either Track Attack or High Performance to build on their skiing ability and overall fitness.
The fees are $100 for the season. Fees include program registration and rifle rental. *Note* Ammunition will be responsibility of the athlete/parents. (Available for purchase from the Biathlon program) We also have dedicated Biathlon Trails Map. In addition, all athletes, coaches and official must register with Biathlon Canada for Insurance
