WMSOC Germany 2016

Posted on | November 12, 2015 | Category: News

The shops have started playing Christmas songs, the days are getting shorter and the nights longer and Ski Orienteers worldwide have started wishing for snow. It is November, and in just a few months, the time will have come for Germany to host the World Masters Ski Orienteering Championships 2016.

This is very exciting, as this will be the first international Ski Orienteering Championship to be held in Germany. The event will take place 21-24 January in Oberwiesenthal, located close to the Czech border. Oberwiesenthal lies at 900-1200 meters’ altitude in the Ore Mountains, and has a long tradition of other winter sports, such as cross country skiing, ski jumping and luge. The town is the biggest winter sport resort in the area, with 75km of cross-country tracks and over 4000 guest beds. Now it is finally time to bring Ski Orienteering to this fantastic resort.

Oberwiesenthal offers beautiful scenery and perfect conditions for winter sports.

The WMSOC will be organised together with a World Cup round in Ski Orienteering, as well as open competitions, so there will be heaps to see and do during the event. If, against all odds, you were to get enough of skiing and orienteering you can even join a culture excursion visiting the German Space Travel Exhibition on 25 January.

By all accounts this event is not to be missed. Remember to enter before the deadline on the 1st of December 2015 to avoid having to pay an extra late registration fee. You can find more information about the event in Eventor and enter the event on OrienteeringOnline.
