Leave the Skis at Home and Sign On for an Oddball Winter Adventure

Presenting three great options

Ice fishing in Wisconsin. (Steve Apps)

The Baker House on eight-square-mile Geneva Lake offers ice fishing for bon vivants—glass shanties, furs to keep warm, and butler-delivered champagne to celebrate that 36-inch northern pike. $220 for two.

Play Lance Mackey on a two-day dogsled through western Maine, from Bethel to Umbagog Lake (watch for moose). Your guide will teach you to mush a team of Alaskan huskies, and you'll crash at bed-and-breakfasts along the route. $1,000 per person all-inclusive.

Get in touch with your inner dirtbag off-roading with trained drivers at the posh Greenbrier resort near White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. You get a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with 35-inch off-road tires and body armor, which you'll use to explore a 1,500-acre course of mud holes, 65-degree descents, and moguls. Beautiful. Off-roading, $225-$475; doubles from $608.
