ESNSA press release

The 2017 Mammoth Winter Biathlon has come and gone and we wanted to take a minute to thank all of the participants, volunteers and spectators.

Our biathlon has a long history of being an inclusive event, has seen different venues and has ranged from very humble beginnings at Obsidian Dome to a magnificent 20 lane range out at Reds Lake.

We think we may have found our permanent home which will make it more sustainable for our volunteer-based group and even potentially increase the number of events we can do each year. We received nothing but positive feedback from athletes about the course, and we are hopeful we can work with Tamarack Cross Country Ski Area and the United States Forest Service to make some changes to the range.

We scaled back this year, but hope to bring back laser and live-fire clinics and food service next year. We’d appreciate any other feedback you may have. Please feel free to provide comments and suggestions to: [email protected].

We couldn’t do this without our loyal volunteers and sponsors.
