We agree: Skiing should be your day job. But when you just can’t steal away for a week to your favorite mountain, you don’t have to settle for a couple Saturday afternoon runs on the home-town hill. How about Whistler, B.C., for the weekend? It takes smart planning, inside tactics and a serious ski jones, but it’s eminently possible.

We’ve mapped out strategies-from the airport to the après bar-at six Western resorts (and even one in the Swiss Alps) to get you from wherever you are to a place you’d rather be. So get packing. It’s going to be a busy weekend.
