People of above-average girth can excel at sports besides sumo. Weight equals speed in tobogganing, as you'll quickly learn at the Camden Snow Bowl Toboggan Run in Camden, Maine, one of the greatest wood chutes in the United States. Screaming riders hurtle down a slope and spin out across a frozen lake. It's just $1 a sled using a rented toboggan or half that when you bring your own ride. Stay at the nearby Hartstone Inn (800-788-4823, hartstoneinn.com, from $100), where the owners and perhaps your fellow guests can regale you with tales of the annual National Toboggan Championships. - Wayne Curtis
