Just a 90-minute drive from Montreal, 73-year old Mont Tremblant ski resort was the first Canadian resort and the second in North America. Its 95 trails mean a skier could hit the slopes for days on end and possibly not ski down the same trail twice. There's a ski school for novices that offers group and individual lessons. Visitors can also skip the slopes and go ice skating, tubing and even dog sledding over frozen lakes. The self-sustained pedestrian village offers more than 50 lodging options, but top on the list is the Fairmont Tremblant. The award-winning hotel brings luxury to the slopes with its indoor and outdoor heated pools, sophisticated slope-side lounge and fifteen-room Amerispa experience. The ski-in/ski-out facility houses its own ski rental boutique, plus a ski valet that allows you to store your equipment safely near the gondola. There's even an over-night tune-up service. The resort also offers some grown-up fun with the newly built Casino de Mont-Tremblant and plethora of cozy, fire-lit après-ski spots to wind down after a long day on the slopes, so just ask the full-service concierge to arrange a babysitter.
