Biathlon in Summer

Biathlon Arena Lenzerheide

The Biathlon Arena Lenzerheide is the first and so far only permanently installed biathlon facility in Switzerland. With its location in the Foppa area in Lantsch / Lenz, it is optimally integrated into the trail network of the Lenzerheide holiday region. The core of the Biathlon Arena is the World Cup compliant shooting range with 30 seats. In addition to the training and competition center for national and international sports teams, the modern accommodation and gastronomy offers also perfect conditions for active recreational athletes. During taster courses, the fascination of biathlon can be experienced first-hand.

Taster sessions & group events

Experience the «fascination of biathlon» - the mixture of concentration and precision when shooting, as well as the stamina and power required for cross-country skiing makes biathlon a challenge for body and mind. After an introduction to shooting with small calibre rifles, you can raise your pulse while running or biking and afterwards attempt to hit the target whilst shooting. In summer you can challenge your stamina by bike, on roller skis or simply on foot. During the fun competition, the rifles always remain at the firing range.

The Lenzerheide Biathlon Arena offers various taster sessions, or can organise an event for you and your colleagues, team mates or friends.

In the taster course following is included:
  • 2 hours biathlon taster course with qualified guidance
  • Introduction into the shooting- and breathing technique
  • 40 to 60 shots
  • Fun biathlon competition

You do not need prior knowledge.

All children between the ages of 10-15 years are allowed to practice the sport with air rifles. Instead of the cross-country skis, we lace up the sneakers and run a round in the arena. This gives us a feeling for the exciting combination of strength, endurance and precision. We look forward to your participation. And who knows ... maybe you will meet the Gasparin sisters or other professional biathletes and can get you some training tips.
