Biathlon Range

About the Biathlon Range

The Biathlon Range opened in 2013 as one of the showcase facility improvements built for the 2015 Canada Winter Games. Our 30 lane Biathlon range meets International Biathlon Union (IBU) standards and our Cross Country ski trails and stadium complex are now fully certified under the Federation International de Ski (FIS) homologation standards.

The range is built on a flat area east of the Otway parking lot. Built to accommodate 30 shooters at once, the range targets are set against a large berm that runs adjacent to Otway Road, with high wooden walls at either end a chain-link fence in behind to act as barriers to keep people off the range. A storage building still under construction will contain the the timing equipment and provide a viewing platform for officials during race events.

One of the most attractive features of the range is its spectator visibility. The hill that surrounds the range is laced with ski trails that will allow skiers to watch races in progress. There’s also a large space in behind the shooting platforms that will bring spectators close to the biathletes firing their rifles.
