The acclaimed Winter Film Fest is a great event in its own right — Saturday, February 22, Sunset Theatre, 7pm


The Wells International Gourmet Ski has been the main fundraiser for WATS for over 10 years. Participants get to experience a few of the things that make Wells great: the skiing, the company, the gorgeous natural setting, and the delicious food produced in our humble kitchens!

Ski as much or as little as you would like, eat fantastic International cuisine at four food stations along the way, and join us for hot drinks and desserts at the finale. Get dressed up in your most ridiculous costumes for a chance to win great prizes! Stay in Wells for the evening and join us at the Sunset Theatre for our popular Winter Film Fest.
