From Colorado to Maine, 10 extreme winter sports that any adventurer can tackle.

Bobsled and Luge Rides

1 of 11

The Venue: Olympic Sports Complex Sliding Track, Lake Placid, NY.

The Adventure: Described as a “ribbon of concrete, steel and ice that zigs and zags down the face of Mt. Van Hoevenberg,” the now-public bobsled track at Lake Placid is an Olympic-caliber venue. For $75, a professional driver and brakeman will pilot you down the twisting ice track, where banked walls produce multiple G-force turns, and freeway speeds are guaranteed to freeze a smile on your face.
