A Day Of Pure Fun At Wild Wings Ski Touring Center in Peru Vermont

Wild Wings Ski Touring Center at Peru Vermont
On the best day of the winter season we found ourselves cross country skiing – for the first time at the Wild Wings Ski Touring Center at  Peru, Vermont! Patti and Danny, our perennial guests from New Jersey, delighted in sharing this most treasured spot with us. In the photo is Patti readying herself for the gradual descent that often seems much faster!
Fourteen kilometers of beautifully groomed trails some taking you past beaver ponds while others though tall-pines and hardwood forests. Hints of wilderness with each stride offer silent backcountry tranquility.  Get your ski gear on and be ready for a day of fun! About an hour from Pond Mountain Inn!
For more information visit the Wild Wings Ski Touring Center website.

Great Cross Country Skiing at Wild Wings in Peru Vermont

We asked a native Vermonter where’s the best place to cross country ski in the greater Manchester, Vermont area? Without hesitation he said, “Wild Wings.” Wild Wings Ski Touring Center is located in Peru, Vermont situated on 50 acres, but with access to over 1000 acres – 9 trails totaling over 25 kilometers is where we sent our weekend guests yesterday.

Patty and Dan had the perfect day – spectacular blues skies, not too cold and magnificently groomed trails made for an impeccable cross country ski day! They rented everything and the staff there couldn’t have been more helpful and hospitable. This was Dan’s maiden voyage on cross country skis – and at 67, he performed marvelously. That’s Dan in the photograph – beautiful technique!

After hearing about this perfect day at breakfast this morning; Kay and I will visit Wild Wings in the coming weeks and give cross country skiing at try! We’ll let you know… stay tuned! Pond Mountain Inn is only 45 minutes away from the Wild Wings Ski Touring Center.
