There's plenty of snow around the northeast Wisconsin town of Eagle River, where beautifully groomed trails draw legions of skiers and snowmobilers.
What to do: See the ice castle. Go skiing and snowshoeing on the many trails. Anvil Lake, where chickadees eat out of skiers' hands (pictured), is a favorite. Go on a snowmobiling tour with Decker's Sno-Venture.
Events to catch: Jan. 19-22, World Championship Snowmobile Derby.
