11. Mont Tremblant, Quebec
Why go: North America’s second-oldest ski resort is in Canadian territory, 80 miles north of Montreal. With its picture-perfect cobblestone streets and Old City-inspired pops of red, teal, and marigold buildings (not to mention all the French-speaking locals), it can feel a little manufactured. But beyond its cutesy facade are 662 acres of skiable terrain for all levels, with 96 ski trails across four slopes. Beginners will feel right at home here, despite the intimidatingly majestic Laurentian mountain range surrounding the resort (which you can view sans skis from the 2,871-foot summit). The ski school is also one of the best on the continent.
Where to stay: Come ‘home’ to a chic, grown-up suite at the Hôtel Quintessence, full of amenities like claw-foot tubs, wood-burning fireplaces, and king-size beds. All 30 rooms come with views of Lake Tremblant, and a balcony or terrace.
