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.
What is Biathlon? Biathlon is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting.
