Alaska Biathlon Association

Alaska’s northern latitude offers the longest season for cross-country ski and biathlon training on snow. We have biathlon ranges and clubs in Anchorage, Galena, Unalakleet, Fairbanks and Nome–Nome hosting the most Western and Northern biathlon range in the world.

In Partnership with local Nordic ski clubs, biathlon clubs and US Biathlon Association, ABA’s mission is to grow biathlon opportunities across Alaska and develop biathletes for recreational, national, and international competitions.
