It may be two hours outside Ottawa, but the fabulous ski resort at Mont Tremblant is worth the drive. As the highest peak in the Laurentians, it offers spectacular views and activities for all tastes. Adrenaline junkies will love the 18 acres of ramps, rails, and jumps, but families with young children shouldn’t be dissuaded — there are plenty of options for budding ski bunnies as well. Like all popular destinations, the hill can get pretty congested at the expected busy times (avoid weekends if you can), even with 95 runs spread over 654 acres of skiable terrain and 14 ski lifts. Had enough skiing/snowboarding for one day? Sign up for any of the alternative activities, such as dog sledding, or wind down at one of the resort’s restaurants or spas.
