Beta: Mont Sainte Anne is bigger, and has more amenities, than nearby Le Massif—but it's also more crowded. The north side is often packed with French Canadians wildly arcing GS turns, so head to the south side's less-populated 17 blacks for trees, mogul alleys, and go-fast groomers.

First Tracks: Mach a few runs on La Super S (on the south side), a 25- to 30-degree, arrow-straight groomer. Then work your way skier's right, and buzz through the trees of the (scary!) Black Forest (Schnell, Munster, and Triumph).

Must-Hit: Because they're a five-minute hike from Chalet Summit Lodge, La Nipivik and the slightly steeper Lamaroq are often overlooked. They're short (under 1,000 vert), but hold fresh snow for days.

Après: Shoot stick at La Chouette, the second-floor slopeside bar that's thick with smoke and wallpapered in Kokanee beer memorabilia. Then dine on classic bar fare at the Saint Bernard Pub just down the road, or drive a bit further down the road and spring for gourmet French food at La Camarine.

The Tip: The unofficial snack of Québec, poutine (poo-teen), consists of French fries, gravy, and cheese curds. It's available everywhere, and—yes—it's kinda gross. But it's also really good when you've been out in the cold—especially when the fries are crisp, the gravy's hot, and you've just skied for several hours.
