10. Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada: While many skiers will argue that all the great skiing in North America is in the West, Mont Tremblant has been single-handedly fighting for the East’s reputation. A 90-minute flight from Montreal, Mont Tremblant is also located in Quebec, and with that comes all the luxuries of French Canada. In addition to great skiing, the mountain has 12 hiking trails, ranging from .62 to more than 12 miles (round-trip) that also coordinate with the gondolas. If you’re feeling up to it, you can hike up the mountain to a breathtaking observation spot and then enjoy a gondola ride down. Mont Tremblant has a very beautiful little village with adorable architecture and quaint shopping. For those looking for a bit more excitement, there is now Casino de Mont-Tremblant, which is even ski-in/ski-out for the skiers among us. For those who might want to arrive by rail, there is a quick shuttle that runs between the Casino and the pedestrian village.(Credit: AP, 2003)

Top 10 destinations for skiers and non-skiers alike

What’s a couple to do if one traveler skis and the other half does not? In response to this traveling issue, many ski towns and resorts have made ramping up their activities for non-skiers as big a priority as providing great powder. In case one member of your party is more bunny slope than snow bunny, the editors and members of VirtualTourist put together the “Top 10 Best Destinations for Skiers & Non-Skiers.” --MCT
