Open Practice

New to Biathlon or just want to get some time shooting and skiing?  This open practice is designed to introduce you to the sport of Biathlon, or if you just want to get some Biathlon practice time in.  Due to COVID, we do have to limit the size of groups so when signing up for the open practice please select an hour slot that works with your schedule.  We will have Range safety officers and helpers at the range sharing with you rifle and range safety and shooting basics.  Rifle and ammo will be provided.  Participants must ski or snowshoe to the Biathlon range (approximately 3/4 mile from parking lot). 
Cost is $25.00

Fun Race

This distance to the race will be approximately 5km.  It will consist of three loops, in which racers will ski into the range two times and shoot 5 shots on prone targets and 5 shots on standing targets with a penalty for every miss.  Racers will be started in 30 second intervals.  Race Course will be marked and maps available at packet pick up.  Ammo and rifles to be provided. 
Cost is $25.00

Bib Pickup

All participants in both practice and race must check in inside the Jug Mountain Ranch club house prior to practice or race.  Check in will be open from 9:30- 2pm.  Every participant is responsible for a Jug Mountain Ranch ski pass. There is a discounted day pass of $5 for anyone who does not currently have a season pass.

Fundraising

This is the Biathlon’s team main fundraising event!
It allows us to continue to maintain and grow the program with rising costs of ammunition, providing materials and needs for our targets and also purchasing new rifles.  Due to COVID we are not able to gather afterwards for awards or soup fest (as we have in the past). 

HOWEVER we are super excited to have Toll Station Pizza and Pasta as a sponsor this year and encourage everyone to enjoy a meal at their restaurant the day of our event either prior to our after the event as they are donating a portion of their gross sales that day to our club.  So I invite everyone to help support our club and visit Toll Station on February 27.
