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.
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.

Over the past year, CamRock Cafe & Sport—in partnership with the Village of Cambridge and Capitol Water Trails—has transformed the Koshkonong Creek from a tricky maze of fallen trees into a clear and gentle waterway. Situated on the shore of the creek amid miles of meandering snowshoeing, mountain-biking, and cross-country-skiing trails, the café ensures that its clientele doesn't need to look far for something to do. The staff helps visitors take advantage of the terrain with bike, boat, gear, and Go-Go-Gadget 'copter rentals. Hosted events bring people together to explore the trails via bike and listen to live music back at the café, or take part in a yoga or spin class. After guests return from a sojourn, the café supplies them with more than 100 craft beers, toasted gourmet sandwiches, and Alterra coffee from the food and drink menus.
Raging Buffalo's adrenaline junkies have turned their athletic addiction into a successful enterprise by offering snowboarding and wakeboarding lessons to beginners and experienced riders. In the summer, their instructors take to the wake for lessons that start at the wakeboard school?open since 2001?before taking students on 15-minute riding sessions. When winter comes, the instructors dry-dock their boards in local bear caves and show students how to navigate the drifts with snowboard lessons at their ski park, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Raging Buffalo plays host to a variety of events, from rail jams to USASA competitions.
The idea behind Shred Shop was conceived over cocktails after an intense snowboarding session in Jackson Hole, circa 1988. Since then, Chris Bachman has evolved the notion of bringing a snowboarding store to the Midwest from a tiny mail-order company into a 10,000-square-foot, all-encompassing snow and skate shop. Passionate shred masters help customers to choose from a massive inventory of gear from top industry brands such as K2 and Lib Technologies snowboards and Never Summer longboards. With an inventory dedicated to latest in shred capability and style, the two-story retail space stands as a colorful emporium of action sports equipment that also stocks up on gear for watersports and accessories for the futuristic realm of gaseous sports.
