If you are attending the Northstar Ski-O event on Tuesday 29-January-2013, here is a map showing where you need to go to register or check in, then go to the gondola and the cross country center. Everybody needs to either register or check in to get their gondola pass. The attached map shows the parking area with a start triangle, the registration/checkin area (Starbucks cafe) as control 1, the gondola loading area as control 2, the gondola exit as control 3, and the cross country center as the finish. At the cross country center, you can drop off your non valuables that you don't want to carry while racing. After you drop off your stuff, you go about one mile up the hill to the start area near Saw Mill Flats. Near the starting area, you will cross two downhill tracks--PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN CROSSING THE DOWNHILL TRACKS!!! 

The course setter and director for this event are Brenda Giese and Jonathan Owens. Check the Registration/Check In station at Starbucks to see if they have any special information other than the following stats:

White   2.5 km   75 m

Orange   5.5 km   150 m

Green   6 km   150 m

Red   8.5 km   250 m

Blue   10 km    300 m

More info on Northstar from the course setter and event director:

Snow shoe trails are mapped as the permanent network of Northstar’s snow shoe trails. Not all of them may have been walked by people in snow shoes lately, so some may be indistinct or absent entirely. In most locations snow-shoe-trail signs on trees are spaced about 100 to 200 feet apart.

Not all trails have been mapped with GPS; some trail locations are therefore approximate and not exact.
