March 22-24th

Nordic Skiers,

We are less than three weeks away from the 6th Annual Mammoth Winter Biathlon!

We have some great new additions to this year’s race including mechanized transport to the venue for all racers, a live shooting clinic option,  as well as our new website at Please check us out!

There is an abundance of snow in the Reds Lake Basin.   The “Saturday” lap is exactly 1.0 Km and has plenty of fun and challenging terrain.  The “Sunday” lap is exactly 1.5km and mixes some rollers, turns, ups and downs with some extended flats so skiers can” stretch their legs”.  Per popular request, “Heartbreak Hill” and the technical downhill turn to follow have been eliminated!

If you are a Nordic ski fan, in any capacity, and want to be apart of this growing  Mammoth Tradition, please either register  for the race (3k, 4.5k or 7.5k) or sign up to Volunteer Registration closes on Tuesday March 19 at 23:59. Shooting  clinic registration is available online at Mammoth Winter Biathlon 2013.

Proceeds from the Biathlon support our Junior Nordic Ski Racers so please register now!
