What’s a Loppet?
Traditionally, a løpet is a long cross-country ski race, a test of endurance, and a reverent nod to the grueling journey of Sweden’s first king Gustav Vasa as he fled Danish imprisonment.
What’s the Laudholm Loppet?
This is a gentler loppet, but with a nod to our own history. Ski, snowshoe, or hike the same amount in kilometers as years since the Wells Reserve’s dedication—that’s 32—between January 1 and March 10. Log your distances (to 0.1 km) on our logsheet or use your favorite app.
Laudholm Loppet Rules
- Have fun.
- Be safe.
