    Master the art of steadiness on cross-country skis before confronting the shooting range with a racing pulse—such is the demanding contrast that defines Biathlon, earning its reputation as one of the most challenging disciplines. The ARBER Hohenzollern Ski Stadium provides optimal conditions for Biathlon enthusiasts. With eight route sections of varying lengths and difficulty, track management for both disciplines, and a shooting range boasting 30 lanes with electronic targets, it stands as an ideal facility. Since 1998, the Hohenzollern Ski Stadium has served as an official regional training center for skiing, hosting both training sessions and competitions.
