Located less than two hours from the city, in the Laurentian Mountains, is the resort town of Mont Tremblant. In the winter, the getaway offers some of the best skiing in North America, with 96 trails, four slopes, and 662 acres for snow sports. There are non-skiing adventures, too, like a nighttime snowshoeing and fondue trek, or dog sledding with Expedition Wolf. In the summer, try off-road biking through 40 miles of trails with Vélo Mont Tremblant (velomonttremblant.com), laze around on the sandy lake, or learn to become a falconeer with a real bird of prey. For a longer detour, book the Hotel Quintessence (rooms, from $315; 3004 Chemin de la Chapelle, Mont-Tremblant; 819-425-3400; hotelquintessence.com), a 30-room boutique hotel in the town’s quaint cobblestoned village.
