Seems quite unfortunate for a WMOC event.

This area has been used for SkiO for a long time. One of the maps on the website is 20 years old.

I looked some but not finding maps on website. Probably looking in wrong place. Did they use the area of the map I sent you? It was a pretty fun area but had more snow that year.

Not sure if you've heard this story but the course setter, Anssi, and his wife, Virpi, came to a US team training camp back in ~ 1990, at Mt Ste Anne. Both are former world champs.

See the end of Bulletin 2 for two maps, plus the referenced site for more.

Ahh, thanks. Looking through those old maps, they're all of the same area, just different scales and croppings. That was one of the 2 ImSu maps I raced on in 1991, on the oldest version of the map shown. The other was the one I sent you, which I found a lot more fun. Probably in part because I spent less time feeling lost, or skiing less than full speed to avoid getting lost...
