Ski Orienteering Weekend

Sat and Sun 17/18 July

Come along and enjoy a fun weekend of ski orienteering and racing.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, we will have a range of courses to cater for both novices and experts, so don't worry if you have never been on XC skis before. This will be a perfect opportunity for families to come along, being the middle weekend of the school holidays. Also acts as the (unofficial) New Zealand Ski Orienteering Champs, so an opportunity for some glory for those that are keen !

Also a chance to get in some practice for the Highland Events snow rogaine the following weekend.
