History:

Reof W. Nordahl Kahldal and Henry Sodvet (two Nor­wegians) were the driving forces behind the building and operating of ski hills. The two built a jump nicknamed "Big Jump" due to the 175 feet of air one could attain lifting off of it. It was so good that the Western Canada Ski Championships were held in Wells the winter of 1936. There was an impressive downhill and slalom hill and a small (75 foot) jump. World-class ski jumpers competed here, and record Canadian jumps of over 60 m were set during the 1930s. Wells hosted the Western Ski and Snowshoe Championships in 1936 and the Provincial Ski Championships in 1942
