Adrenaline

You could pedal for days along Le P'tit Train du Nord¿a 200-kilometer linear park.

Fore! Book ahead if you want to play the local courses; tee-times get taken early. Call (888) 736-2526 for Le Géant or Le Diable; (800) 567-6767 for La Belle and La Bête.

RejuvenationBook the "Cadillac" of massages¿a Vichy shower massage¿so nicknamed because a therapist gives you a Swedish massage while five water jets needle you. Call Le Spa at Château Mont Tremblant (819) 681-7680.

Refueling Station For raclette or fondue, visit La Savoie (819-681-4573). For creative French cuisine, dine at Aux Truffes (819-681-4544). For local ambiance and grilled fare, it's Auberge Sauvignon (819-425-5466) in Mont Tremblant village.

On The Town Fine wines, scotches, local cheeses and pâté are the fuel at La Grappe au vin, a local bar that has a cigar bar on the second floor. Sleeping In Book at the Château Mont Tremblant (800-441-1414) for luxury hotel rooms, or Le Lodge de la Montagne (888-736-2526) for deluxe condos. For less expensive, smaller condos, go to Les Chouettes (888-736-2526). (Don't forget: Your dollar is worth more in Canada, so this is your chance to live large.)

On A Rainy Day Swing like Tarzan¿or Jane¿into the indoor pool at La Source, a 16,000-square-foot aqua park, resembling a Laurentian forest lake. Summer Festivals Listen to the blues and smooth jazz played by dozens of individual artists and bands during the Sixth Annual International Blues Festival, July 29-Aug. 1. From June 27-29, Tremblant hosts the Export 'A' Skins Game¿a duel between four golf legends who battle it out on the greens of Le Diable for huge sums of money.
