Practices are normally at Blackhawk Ski Club, which provides our primary training facility, snowmaking, grooming and winter safety. BNST occasionally trains at other local trails and facilities, especially in the pre-season. The team competes in approximately ten events in the Wisconsin Nordic Ski League each year, mid-December through early March. Race participation is optional but encouraged at all skill levels! Our skiers can also try the sport of biathlon at Blackhawk, the only youth biathlon program in Wisconsin.
