The sun rises in the East, sets in the West, and Tremblant ranks no. 1. That’s 15 years running, if you’re counting. (Tremblant is.) True, fewer U.S. readers make it to the snowy Laurentians north of Montreal. But those who do consistently rave about the charming French village squeezed between lake and mountain. “A beautiful place,” says one reader. “I’d move there in a minute.” Tremblant’s rankings are stellar: no. 1 in Service, On-Mountain Food, Lodging and Dining; no. 2 in Après, Lifts and Off- Hill Activities. With its lively slopeside plazas connected by narrow shop-lined alleys, the original Tremblant sets the Eastern standard for planned ski villages. The richly Quebecois sense of place adds fun and culture, and highend hotels and restaurants rub shoulders with family-friendly digs, rowdy pubs and an affordable pizza joint. Hop a gondola and in minutes you’re at the newer Versant Soleil base village, where you can try your luck at felted tables in the glitzy casino. If you’re here to ski, Tremblant offers legit vert tumbling off both sides of a snowcapped peak with stirring views. “The scenery is awesome and the terrain is varied. Something for everyone,” a reader writes. The knocks? It’s a little colder up there, and Tremblant’s annual 150 inches are merely sufficient. Americans can dodge the crowds if they study up on Canadian holiday schedules. And anyway, crowds are the price of popularity. —Joe Cutts

On-Hill Lunch » Go figure: All that great French food, and everyone wants to go to the new Mexican place, Puesta del Sol, which opened in April. But this is Tremblant, so it’s hard to go wrong wherever you end up.

Après Spot » Quebec brewers are highly regarded by beer snobs everywhere. Try the micro-ales (and occasional lagers) at La Diable. The coolest club, Café d’Epoque, cranks up later in the night.

Family Activity » You could dump your kids in ski school and skip the bonding. Or you could take a lesson with them. It’s a new program at the ski school. The kids get a lesson; the parent gets a lesson on how kids learn.

I have not seen anything exceptional about this resort. The other ones in Quebec like St. Anne, or Le Massif seemed more interesting. And worst of all, they have the worst customer care amongst the already demeaning customer service among all other Intrawest resorts. I have been to tremblant four times and I have given up hope. If you have not been to Tremblant I would not discourage the experience but go ahead and be your own judge.
