Kia ora koutou and welcome to the 2022 Rainbow Snow-O

This is the second time this event is being held, the first event was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone
who took part and ever since they have been asking when the next one is. So here we go!

Each participant will be issued an event bib, a map and a SI-Card (orienteering memory stick).
The Snow-O is an individual event competing against the clock.
Participants need to visit all controls in numerical order, by navigating to control flags, at each
control there will be an electronic box that will record your visit.

All controls can be accessed from the T-bar, with downhill and traversing travel.
