Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
The locals in Wells take cross-country skiing very seriously.
The ability to commute via the quiet roads of this mountain town explains some of the community's allure. Cruise down the streets on any given winter day and see a set of skis (or two) jammed in the snow bank near a front porch or shop entrance. But cross-country skiing here is not just about getting to work.
Highlight Cross-Country Spots
Wells offers a range of cross-country skiing opportunities, mostly on backcountry (ungroomed) trails. However, Cornish Mountain has some groomed tracks along its 25km/15mi of trails that aren't open to motorized vehicles.
Wildlife watching is also an option while skiing. Moose, ptarmigan and wintering swans may be seen on the broad wetlands that the network of trails traverse, before the slopes climb surrounding mountains and open to present spectacular views.
