I've wanted to orienteer in the snow for a while, so I made myself a Foot-O course on the Hollyburn map. This year is perfect for it as there's still 2m+ of snow up there, but the Nordic area has closed already so we're able to run off-trail (and don't have to wear snowshoes).
I added the snowshoe trails to the regular Ski-O map (using strava heatmaps), and they turned out to be pretty accurate. They're not super visible any more, but you can definitely follow them when you're on them.
I ran in micro-spikes and chose straight-is-great route choices. That got pretty steep at times, and I was doing some hands-and-feet ascents, but I never lost too much traction. Some of the subtler contour features were lost in the snow, but the map worked far better than I anticipated.
It had snowed 15cm today, so it was hard work breaking trail. I had a blast up there though. I've emailed the course to the Night-O mailing list, so hopefully some other folks can enjoy it too.
