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 and Juvenile.

A team consists of up to eight athletes and two coaches from each participating contingent.
