Ski-orienteering is a x-c ski race but instead of following a clearly marked route, racers find a series of checkpoints, choosing whatever route they think they can ski the fastest. The racer that finds all the checkpoints in the least time is the winner. The checkpoints are located on trails and marked on a trail map which the racer carries. Note that new trails will be added specifically for this event.
