Event description3 days orienteering local event on the maps of WMOC2013 with two long distances in San Sicario forest and a sprint distance in Sestriere city center. Competitions are located near to the French border and a 3 days orienteering local event on the French side will forerun our event, giving the opportunity for the passionate orienteers to run six competitions in a week within the same area in the Alps.
Terrain descriptionSan Sicario Forest: Typical alpine terrain characterized by a uniform slope broken by small watercourses, erosion gullies and other occasional contour details. Larch forest with excellent run-ability and visibility is alternating with areas of open land used for grazing. Network of paths is poor but there are some ski slopes. Sestriere city center: the town is located on the pass between Chisone and Susa valleys at about 2000 m above sea level and it is surrounded by alpine meadow, very open forests and a golf course. The town is characterized by significant slopes and many small parks. The structure of the streets is quite simple but navigation is made complicated because of the presence of many similar houses, not crossable walls and multi-levels.
