Responsible for three of Whistler's 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games Venues: the Whistler Sliding Centre, Whistler Olympic Park, and the Whistler Athletes' Centre.
Biathlon is a sport in which participants combine cross-country skiing with rifle marksmanship. In competition biathlon is performed using skate technique and 22 calibre rifles. Athletes or participants skate a short ski loop, fire 5 rounds at the biathlon target and head off again around the ski loop. There are various formats but the ultimate goal is to ski fast and shoot straight. The sport is wildly popular in many areas of the world and particularly in central Europe.
At Whistler Olympic Park we offer a variety of recreational programs for biathlon.
