6. Maine
Ski Fresh Tracks in the North Woods

Sporting camps are as quintessentially Maine as L.L. Bean and lobster. (Think toasty cabins with woodstoves and hearty family-style meals.) The Appalachian Mountain Club links three of these camps in central Maine’s North Woods. The route starts near Greenville and crosses 14 miles in the 100-Mile Wilderness to West Branch Pond Camps. There you’ll be greeted by slow-roasted turkey and chocolate pudding cake. Day two calls for a 12-mile ski to Little Lyford Pond Camps, where you’re likely to spot river otters and martens—or at least their tracks. Arrive early so you can ski into Gulf Hagas, "the Grand Canyon of Maine."

Vitals: The Appalachian Mountain Club offers all-inclusive packages, from $420 for three days (outdoors.org).
