Experience Biathlon - Learn to Shoot

Feel like an Olympian with this hands-on introduction to biathlon. Learn about the Olympic winter sport and shoot a .22 calibre biathlon rifle at the Olympic range. Get an appreciation of an athlete's ability to stay focused and control their heart rate for shooting in between race laps on cross country skis.

This 40-minute group experience for 2 to 6 participants aged 10 and up includes 2 clips of ammunition (10 shots). Additional clips (5 shots) can be added for only $5 + tax each! No skis/snowshoes required.

Note that this lesson includes the shooting portion of biathlon only. If you wish to include a skiing element as well, book a Private Biathlon Lesson (see details below), or book your Experience Biathlon as an add-on to a Private Cross Country Ski Lesson. Our Guest Services team will help you to find the best option!
