Blackhawk Ski Club

The biathlon program at Blackhawk Ski Club gives club members the opportunity to participate in winter biathlon which combines cross country skiing and target shooting. Participants in the past have included novices with no prior experience to experienced biathletes looking for a place to practice and race. The Blackhawk biathlon area is open to members that are participating in club practices, involved in an introduction to biathlon program or have previous biathlon experience. Blackhawk has a lighted 8pt shooting area that is connected to a Nordic trail system complete with a large loop of man-made snow. Our snow making capabilities along with area lighting makes Blackhawk a great place to train and compete regardless of weather conditions. Club members interested in use of the 50 meter shooting area need prior biathlon safety certification or be involved in an organized club biathlon activity. The biathlon area also includes a set up for air rifles at a shooting distance of 10 meters. During the year the opportunity to learn about and participate in biathlon will available to Blackhawk members including those enrolled in the Middle School and High School Nordic programs.
