The Ethan Allen biathlon facilities were originally built to be a
state of the art facility and remain one of the top biathlon centers
in the United States. The facilities include a 30 point range, more
than 18 kilometers of established trails, snow making, waxing huts, 6
kilometers of paved and lighted roller skiing a large meeting building
as well as toilet facilities, showers, and a kitchen, and a separate
building at the finish line dedicated to timing operations. The range
is located approximately 30 minutes from Burlington, Vermont, a
beautiful city with a population of approximately 39,000 situated on
the shore of Lake Champlain and the edge of the Green Mountains. The
area is easily accessed by Burlington International Airport with
regular connections to major airline hubs and can be reached from most
of the Northeast by interstate highways.
