This weekend in Mammoth Lakes there are two days of skiing and shooting going on otherwise known as biathlon. The Eastern Sierra Nordic Ski Association will be hosting two days of biathlon racing. What is biathlon? Well short and sweet it’s a nordic ski race where you pause and shoot at targets with a rifle while your heart rate is sky rocketing! If you miss the targets you get to do a penalty lap before continuing on the standard race course. Sound like fun to you? Check it out this weekend, Saturday and Sunday at 9am at Tamarack Cross-Country Center. Rifles and ammunition will be provided. Check out the ESNSA website for entry info/forms and more info on biathlon in the Sierra Nevada.
