Scandinave Spa
scandinave main
A day at Scandinave provides the ultimate spa experience.

This unique spa is located just minutes away from the resort. One treatment starts with a warm up in a Jacuzzi, dry or steam sauna, then cold plunge immediately into the river (which is often frozen). Then, rest by the fireplace until you are ready to do it again. The cycle usually lasts about 45 minutes, and you can repeat as often as you like. Skeptical? You'll feel extraordinarily relaxed after the process. Complete the experience and get a Swedish massage, lounge in the Finnish dry-air sauna or Norwegian steam room, soak in heated Jacuzzis, or take a swim in the river.

Legacy 1934: Girls Gone Wild

Legacy 1934: Girls Gone Wild

Enticed by popular learn-to-ski weeks and a glamorous nightlife, single women converged for many years on Gray Rocks, Que., which opened with a ropetow in 1934.

For girl-meets-boy skiing, there was no better place than Quebec’s Gray Rocks.

If you were single, the ingredients of a successful ski trip for generations of skiers were a big lodge with communal dining, a bar that was open past midnight, talented ski instructors, dancing, good-looking girls and handsome fellas...and, oh yeah, reliable snow. For years, no resort fused these qualities better than Gray Rocks, in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains. It succeeded even though its 620-foot vertical was dwarfed by nearby Mount Tremblant’s 2,000 feet.

Where Now: Mont Tremblant, Que.

Where Now: Mont  Tremblant,  Que.

Tremblant’s 2,116 vertical feet boast steeps off the summit as well as mellow glades and groomed cruisers, all with views of the Laurentians or Lac Tremblant.

This Eastern Canadian crowd-pleaser has added a second base village—with another still to come.

The monsters I’ve created—twin 15-year-old daddy’s girls—are getting pretty hard to impress. It’s not their fault: I’ve dragged them to nearly every resort in the East, where they’ve stayed in the nicest hotels and dined in the best restaurants. Still, I can’t help wanting them to enjoy our family ski trips. So this year we’re heading further afield: Mont Tremblant.
