Orienteering race 3:45:00 [5] 10.3 mi (21:51 / mi)

Ski-O at Moreau. Opted for the two-hour score-O option, even though it was snowshoe-oriented, because I wanted to maximize my navigation time. (The red course probably would have served just as well).

Ended up getting 18 of 23 controls. Of the 5 missed, 2 were partway up the mountain and not easily accessible on skis. The other 3 were easy but I had to pass them up because of time. I spent a lot of time tracking down one of the snowshoe-only controls on top of a large rock outcrop - only Glen T. had visited this one and it looked like he attacked it from the road. No one had skied beyond here and I lost the trail, so I just headed south toward the finish, not sure if I'd even get any more controls. Once I re-connected with tracks, though, I was able to get 4 more since that's where the tracks led me.

Skiing on the lakes was very counterproductive. In some areas there was slush which stuck to your skis and pretty much killed your glide. Plus, getting from the lake level up to the level where most of the controls were was a challenge.

Overall, snowshoes probably would have been a better choice.

Afterwards I collected controls for another 90 minutes in an increasingly powerful snowstorm. The good news: I found an SI stick that someone had lost earlier - a speck of blue caught my eye. The bad news: I tried to dry my favorite fancy high-tech shirt by the fire in the warming hut, and it melted within a minute. Phil H-T said, "Oh yeah, people have been melting their coats all day".
