Twenty-one runs streak across the Toggenburg Mountain Winter Sports Center trail map, furnishing skiers and snowboarders with ample real estate to perfect swerves and test nerves in the crisp high country air. Five lifts—two doubles, a triple, and a pair of beginner rope tows—hoist snowy revelers to the top of runs such as the black diamond Oh My Goat, the blue square Angora Alley, and the green circle Capricorn Caper, as well as two terrain parks. Here, a gantlet of rails, boxes, and tables not only give daredevils the chance to show off their aerial acrobatics, but also provide a rough idea of what it would be like to wear skis into a furniture store. First-timers and skiers in need of a refresher can sign up for snow school, where expert instructors illuminate proper technique during private, semiprivate, and group lessons.

Off the mountain, Chilly Choices ski shop keeps skiers and snowboarders warm on the outside with hats, gloves, goggles, and apparel. Meanwhile the Foggy Goggle and Toggenburg Cafeteria keep them warm them on the inside with toasty eats such as braised tenderloin tips and pizza.

Friday and Saturday evenings from sundown to 11:00 p.m., visitors can traverse the cursed trails of Swamp Road to encounter the spectral remains of its permanent residents. Paranormal sightings begin in the parking area and extend through a spirited outdoor romp down a wooded trail, guided by staffers that spook visitors by wearing skeleton costumes and spook each other by talking about their first day of middle school. Daring participants visit the twisted home of a doll maker constructing figurines from unidentified parts, and lumbering shadows of werewolves and swamp creatures lurk in one's peripheral vision. The disturbed ground of a cemetery houses the restless spirits of lost lumberjacks, and a homicidal clown endlessly searches for souls and size 31 shoes.

Lakeland Winery's winemaking parties bridge the gap between independent home brewers and off-the-shelf wine buyers with engaging and informative viticultural classes. Experts trained in conversational French oversee groups of up to 15 at the winery, where they can choose to sample the store’s award-winning wines for a small fee before deciding which variety to make. After the wine has fermented, groups can cork each bottle and design a label, choosing from designs that include elegant fonts or scenes depicting the messy breakup of the California Raisins.

During each journey, a certified pilot deftly ferries passengers through the skies in a striking, streamlined R66 turbine helicopter, outfitted with a wraparound bubble canopy for easy viewing of scenic landscapes, and a cargo hold for carrying skis, golf clubs, and other, smaller helicopters. Guests drink in the idyllic forests, hills, and lakes of the region as they snap pictures or roll film for posterity.

Affiliates of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks, the Syracuse Crunch has its second-half sights set on moving up the East Division standings and into the AHL playoffs. Cheer as left-wingers Nicolas Deschamps and Patrick Maroon cross-check opponents, hypnotically skate around mesmerized defenders, and drain three-pointers from center ice. With sharp blades and even sharper puck-manipulating capabilities, the Crunch look to give first-year head coach Mark Holick a successful inaugural campaign. From Oncenter War Memorial Arena's ice-level, Crunch Club, or lower mezzanine-level seats, fans can witness every glove-save at while reading the baroque poems that players write while in the penalty box.
