Description: Omenica Ski Club was founded in 1927 and has enjoyed growth and many successes leading up to today. The Jean Paulson Lodge was built in 2005, with a potential occupancy of 150. The Biathlon is the combination of ski and shooting skills. It is a sport that is growing in popularity, and one where the contestants must complete and demonstrate skills at both skiing and shooting. Omenica Ski Club is building on existing assets to construct a biathlon range to BC Biathlon standards as well as purchasing the equipment needed for the Club to host regional competitions. This project is funded in partnership by NKDF, COMFOR, and the Omenica Ski Club.
