Shoot for the Stars
The NWT Biathlon Association works to bring communities together through the sport of biathlon. Through participation in cross country skiing, snowshoeing and marksmanship, we aim to promote health, wellness, and connection to the land. We envision a future where athletes of all ages and abilities can learn the skills to shoot, ski, and snowshoe as part of their daily life in the North.
