POURQUOI: The village at the base of Tremblant (an Intrawest-owned resort) could be Whistler. And like its Western twin this town parties, but with a French sort of je ne sais quoi. The skiing is solid—plenty of steeps, consistent coverage, and four distinct mountain faces.

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE: When it’s groomed, click into your race skis and arc top-to-bottom laps. For glade skiing, try Emotion or Sensation off the Edge, an old, slow lift that ensures thin crowds and lots of fresh tracks.

LOCAL SECRET: Ski the north side of the mountain to avoid the crowds and find better snow quality.

APRÈS: Rejuvenate your legs at the Scandinave Spa’s cycle of hot pools, cold pools, sauna, and steam. Oh, and the Québécois love their fondue: La Savoie does it best.
