Winter or Summer Discover The OLYMPIC BIATHLON EXPERIENCE
See if you can hit all FIVE targets
As an “aspiring Olympian,” you will be provided with clips of five shots each, so there will be plenty of opportunity to learn and improve your skills. You will be provided with highly accurate rifles, similar to rifles used during the Olympic Games. After range instruction and practice, we will create a “mini’ fun competition, designed especially for you or your group. Ski or snowshoe, run or bike, this little course gets your heart rate up. You might not shoot as well as you get a small taste of what biathlon competition is like. It’s truly an Olympic experience! No Experience Needed, Individuals or Groups Welcome!
Recommended by the New York Times as a must do while in Park City!
From the New York Times, Dec. 2007: Of the many sports that haven’t captivated Americans, few baffle like the biathlon, a combination of Nordic skiing (or biking in the summertime) and gunplay. One reason we haven’t embraced it is that there are few places to try it. At (Soldier Hollow) amateurs can try it out. It was the venue for the 2002 Olympics cross country skiing and biathlon and is about a 25 minute drive south of Park City. No experience is necessary. Programs range from one hour introductions to... all-day gear rentals for groomed trails (for bicycles in the summertime)...”.
Don’t forget your camera! While shooting at the Olympic range, everyone will wear a bib that was actually won during the 2002 Olympic games. The experience ends on our biathlon Official Awards Podium where everyone is awarded a certificate suitable for framing.
