Biathlon combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting. Younger athletes start with paintball guns and air rifles to experience the sport and learn fundamentals. Junior Race Team athletes progress to biathlon rifles, begin carrying the rifle and learn proper range procedure.

Athletes should be able to ski at levels comparable to cross-country skiers of a similar age group within the region. Shooting focus is on consistency and cadence from both the prone and standing positions.

This program is a joint effort between NYSEF, ORDA and the Lake Placid Ski Club.

NYSEF offers year-round training in ski jumping and nordic combined in the Lake Placid area. Athletes as young as 7 years old begin jumping with a focus on the FUNdamentals of the sport. Anyone who has driven through Lake Placid knows the spectacular view of the Olympic Jumping Complex - one of the most recognizable competition venues from the 1980 Winter Olympics. This is the venue which our jumping athletes call home.

Athletes learn to fly on the K20 jump and often progress to the K48 quickly. As jumpers fine-tune their skills, they move to the towers of the K90 and K120. Athletes also get a dose of cross-country with the option of pursuing nordic combined. Several Olympians have come through the NYSEF program, including 2010 Gold Medalist in nordic combined, Billy Demong.
