Ski orienteering is a unique sport that combines orienteering with cross country ski racing.  Races are held entirely on trails, although some competitors may choose to take shortcuts through the woods.  Elite ski orienteers combine excellent map reading skills with great skiing, although the sport can accommodate any abilities of orienteering and skiing.   Racers are presented a map at the start, and must find the designated controls in the correct order, as fast as possible.  How you choose to get to each control is in your hands!
