1. Range Development Project 2016-2017
This two year project is a major upgrade of the only biathlon range in Australia. Australian Biathlon will be working closely with Mount Hotham Resort Management to build a range and surrounds that will allow international competition, training and racing facilities for athletes, together with disabled access.
The project will increasing to 15 competition lanes, widening of individual lanes to International Biathlon Union standard, major earth works, target infrastructure upgrade (including use of five-in-a-row biathlon target papers), firing point upgrade and disabled access.
The upgrading will improve enormously the usage by Australian Biathlon members and the Australian Defence Nordic Biathlon Members during the winter season. In addition, it will allow disabled access to the general public during the summer months, including mountain biking, walkers and those with small children and babies in prams/strollers, who may park in the adjacent car park and enjoy the amenity of an area not usually accessible to them.
2. International Travel Project (including towards Olympic Winter Games 2018)
The aim of this project is to support national squad members taking part in international training and competition, at all levels of competition.
This includes preparation for the Winter Olympic Games in 2018.
Your donation to this project may be received any time before the squad/team departs Australia.
