Ski Biathlon has a long and storied past across the circumpolar world with the first recorded biathlon races taking place in the 1700s, in Scandinavia. Today ski biathlon competition at the Arctic Winter Games consists of four events: interval start, mass or pursuit start, relay and a sprint event for males and females in two age categories: junior (born 1999-2002) and juvenile (born 2003 or later). A team consists of up to eight athletes and two coaches from each participating contingent.
In 2018 the Biathlon events will be held at the Hay River Ski Club in Hay River.
