At Navarino Hills, skis, snowboards, and inner tubes zoom down trails blanketed in freshly made snow. Double chairlifts and cable tows ferry visitors to the top of the slopes so they can start their run or help search for the yeti's lost contacts. After hitting the mountain, head inside the chalet to warm up with hot cocoa, coffee, or cappuccino daily or fish fries every Friday.

Originally a family farm before two families of ski enthusiasts purchased the land in 1961, Sunburst Ski Area now encompasses 13 sundry ski runs as well as terrain parks and steep tubing lanes for winter athletes of all skill levels. Skiers and boarders plummet down nine runs that range from rolling bunny hills to harrowing double-black-diamond steeps. Flashy alpinists can trick out at the terrain parks, which boast a series of rails, ramps, and tables for mid-grind picnic lunches. Additionally, patrons can carve through the fresh powder after dark, as a full spotlight system keeps the slopes open until 9 p.m. from Monday–Thursday and 10 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On the tubing hill, riders seated in inflatable tubes zoom, bob, and spin down 12 chutes measuring 900 feet long and spanning a 10-story descent. The tubes can reach speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, which is just fast enough to outpace the hungry snowmen that think each one is a gigantic donut.

No ski lessons. No beginners allowed. All ungroomed terrain. Averaging 273 inches per year, Mount Bohemia is a snow-covered haven for seasoned skiers, eschewing bunny slopes for 500-plus acres with two chair lifts filled with 90 runs?most of which are rated for experts. The mountain's 900-foot vertical drop, noted for being the tallest in the midwest, has won it many fans, including MSN Travel, which named it on its list of 10 Undiscovered Ski Spots in 2006. They were also rated number one for best powder skiing east of the rockies by Powder Magazine.
