The Bay Nordic Biathlon program continues to evolve and grow. As a ski club we encourage adults and youth ages 12 and above to consider Biathlon as a year-around activity. In addition to snow skiing, Bay Nordic Biathlon offers off-season “no-sno” biathlon events which feature running, mountain biking, roller-skiing, and various combinations.
We are excited to announce that for the 2023/24 Season Bay Nordic Biathlon will be siting weekday practices and competitions/classes at the state-of-the-art Ariens Nordic Center in Brillion, Wisconsin. This new world-class facility features lighted and professionally-groomed ski trails, a full 20-point biathlon shooting range, and access to off-season paved trails for rollerskiing.
Our program consists of three membership tiers (CHOOSE ONE):
1) Exploratory Tier: (for those who are interested in participating in biathlon through our club at an introductory level, who may choose to compete but who don’t require individualized coaching). While individual rifle rentals are NOT currently available for exploratory tier participants, club rifles may be available for use depending on availability; $50 per participant base fee (+ annual range pass)
2) Competitive Tier: For those who will compete as a member of our team, who want individual coaching (available August – March) and who may wish to rent a biathlon rifle for the upcoming season. NOTE: Biathlon rifle availability is limited; we encourage members to sign up early; $100 per participant base fee (+ annual range pass and rifle rental if needed)
3) Elite Tier: For those serious competitors who desire extended training with our advanced coaches (starting weekly in May) and who will be pushed to compete at an elite level throughout the season. Elite tier participants must have completed at least 1 prior competitive biathlon season and is limited to 6 participants); NOTE: Biathlon rifle availability is limited; we encourage members to sign up early; $200 per participant base fee (+ annual range pass and rifle rental if needed)
