Biathlon is an amazing test of both stamina and concentration, combining cross country skiing and shooting in one unique winter sport.  Did you know that these athletes train year-round, using roller skis on the pavement to get faster, combined with a shooting range to improve their accuracy? This summer, National Team athletes are training in Lake Placid, top stars in the sport who have represented the USA in the Olympics.

Schedule to Watch

When watching athlete training, we ask that you safely watch them, don’t cross barriers, and let athletes approach you, rather than you approaching them. The viewing area for biathlon training is the bridge in front of the lodge, or to the right by the RFID gate also in front of the lodge. We also ask that you please do not walk across the roller loops for the safety of you and the athletes that are training.
