Biathlon combines the physical test of cross-country skiing with the psychological demands of rifle marksmanship. With its origins dating back to hunting and military campaigns in snow covered regions, biathlon is today a popular Olympic sport.
The ASC Training Center is one of the few Clubs in the West to offer a biathlon range, clinics, lessons and competitions.

2013 summer Red Book Certification
United States Biathlon Association Safety “Red Book” Certification is available to those with their own biathlon rifle. Red Book is required to enter most masters biathlon races nationwide and Auburn Ski Club’s “Pro” races and “open Range” sessions.
To be Red book certified you will be required to demonstrate the ability to handle the rifle safely, take the bolt out in the event of a round being stuck in the chamber, safely ski into the range, take the rifle off, shoot, put the rifle back on and ski out of the range. Red book certification is founded on all aspects of safety and competence when handling a rifle for biathlon or in any other circumstance.

Help us build a new Range
This summer we are stepping up our efforts to complete range improvements by the fall. The plan is to cut into the hillside at the old range to create a safe backdrop that will allow the Range to be open without having to close trails for our regular skiers.
Please take a minute to read and share with friends this fundraising letter and brochure to see how you can help. ASC-TC Biathlon Range Fundraising Campaign
