Date and Time

The event will take place Sunday, December 4th between 11:00am-2:00pm. Starting time slots will be between 11am-1pm. Please arrive at your assigned time slot in order to help us run things smoothly and safely.


The event will be staged at Lubrecht Experimental Forest outside of Greenough, MT. The exact location is here. We will have an indoor space reserved for folks to warm up and socialize after the event. 

Equipment  We will provide specially created maps with pre-printed courses for each participant.We will also provide loaner compasses. Please return these when you are done. Any skiing style is permitted. All checkpoints are located on groomed trails, but occasional shortcuts through terrain or smaller trails may prove advantageous. 

A limited number of Ski Orienteering map holders will be available for borrowing during the event. Please email to request one ahead of time.

Courses You will be able to select from three different courses for the ski orienteering event: Short (~3km), Middle (~5km), Long (~7km). The courses are measured in straight lines. You will definitely end up skiing quite a bit further than the straight-line distance.

Beginner Instruction Beginner instruction will be provided by several experienced orienteers. If this is your first event, take a look at the "Newcomers" section of our website to get an idea of what to expect: .

Start and Finish You will need to check in with one of our volunteers at registration  before proceeding to the start. Our volunteers will provide you with the  appropriate map, a loaner compass if needed, and a loaner electronic  timing chip and will keep track of  who is out and doing which course. When you have found all the controls  on your course, return to the finish and check in with a volunteer  there. Even if you decide to quit your course before finding all the  controls, please check in at the finish so we do not go out searching for you.

Electronic "punching"

An e-punch records your race. At each control, you’ll dip the e-punch  into an electronic box, which will beep and flash as confirmation.  After you finish, you’ll download the e-punch at the download tent and  get a receipt that shows which controls you visited and how long you took  between each; these are your “splits.”

Part of the fun of orienteering is comparing your splits with people  who completed the same course, and discussing the routes you took!

Covid-19 Precautions We recommend that you wear masks the entire time you are in the registration, start, and finish areas. Hand sanitizer will be available at check-in.For the purposes of beginner instruction, you will be assigned to one  of our experienced volunteers. Please respect their space and maintain  proper social distancing.
