Marcus Gore was born in Vail and grew up ski racing in the Ski & Snowboard Club Vail program. At the age of 14, he decided to pursue cross-country skiing instead.
He discovered biathlon in the same way as many young nordic skiers in the West, through the West Yellowstone biathlon clinics hosted by Marc Sheppard. He never gets tired of hearing targets drop. Now as part of the team, Marcus has high hopes and big goals for the coming seasons.
