Welcome to the Champagny le Haut Orienteering Course for cross-country runners! Choose your course (blue, red or black), and with the orienteering map, find the markers in the order proposed.
Using the legend and symbols on the map, orient yourself and find your position and the route you need to take to find the markers in the proposed order.

The starting point is represented by a triangle (Nordic ski chalet) and each marker by a circle with its number. In the centre of each circle is a characteristic feature of the terrain (intersection, corner fence, tree, etc.) on which the marker is located. It is sometimes necessary to leave the cross-country ski tracks to find the beacon.

On each beacon, the code number will allow you to check your location. Punch your card in the corresponding box.

Once you have completed the course, come and check your punches at the Tourist Office and win some goodies!
