If you are new to the sport of rogaine …you should try it!  It is orienteering around the ski field with a simple map aiming to score maximum points by visiting control points within your ski ability and the set time - being late back earns mega penalties.  The amount of points that can be collected varies between controls. The aim is to visit as many controls and collect as many points possible in the time allowed. Each control has a number and a clicker to mark your score card or a clue to prove that you visited the control. Controls can be visited in any order within the allotted time but you lose points very quickly for arriving back late. 

Looking forward to seeing you in this fun challenge!
