Guests taking part in an 'Experience Biathlon' lesson

Biathlon Lessons

Biathlon is a unique winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship. Our biathlon lessons give those aged 10+ the opportunity to experience the sport for the first time, or refine existing skills!

We have options for instruction in shooting only (group) or both cross-country skiing & shooting (private up to 6 people).

Before your lesson, be sure to read our "Know Before You Go" for helpful information on what to wear and bring for a day of cross-country skiing or biathlon. You can also determine your current skiing level by viewing our guide.
