POURQUOI: Owned by the same family since it opened in 1960, Mont Sutton is known for its glades. Careful coiffing opened up 45 percent of the mountain as nicely spaced trees. Because the management leaves many slopes ungroomed, Sutton has some of the best powder-skiing terrain in eastern Canada.

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE: How can you pass up a little Séduction? Rated “extreme” on the trail map, it’s pretty steep, even by Western standards. Midweek, $89 gets you local accommodation and a lift pass for a day and a half.

APRÈS: Maple-syrup pie at La Rumeur Affamée. Nuff said.

It’s steep, sustained (enough to host the Olympic downhill in 2002), and never crowded.
