Discover Biathlon at Mt. Van Hoevenberg

Opening November 2022!

It began, they say, more than a century ago as a training exercise for Norwegian soldiers, which goes a long way toward explaining how cross-country skiing and riflery met. The result is the biathlon, the only sport that involves ski wax and bullets. And this is one of the few places you can learn about it and experience being a biathlete!


During the winter season, take an in-depth look at this sport that combines freestyle skiing and rifle marksmanship. Take a ski lesson to start the program or just join us on the range to zero in your shooting skills.

Your experience includes:

  • Introductory video on the sport of Biathlon
  • 1-Day Trail Pass & Rentals
  • 1-hour PSIA Ski Lesson
  • Professional instruction on the Olympic Biathlon Range at Mt. Van Hoevenberg

Visiting in the summer?

In the summer months, obviously you can’t ski the trails without snow, but you can still experience the thrill of lining up a target with our Be a Biathlete and Bike and Biathlon programs!

Sunday, December 26 – Sunday, January 2 – 11:30 PM – 1:00 PM

Times and dates are subject to change, weather and conditions permitting.
