1. Get crafty
There’s no shortage of shops in Mont-Tremblant, but you can also create your own souvenir at boutiques that double as DIY ateliers. Learn how to mould and fuse stained glass into artwork or jewellery by booking a workshop at La Vie à l’en Verre, just a 10-minute drive from the mountain, or hand-paint your own ceramic dish, teapot, vase or piggy bank at the pedestrian village’s Studio Créatif.

2. Cook up a storm
Trained at Charles Barrier’s three-Michelin-starred restaurant in France, chef Patrick Bermand made his way to Mont-Tremblant, where he serves up crowd-pleasing favourites like filet mignon tartare and lobster poutine at his eponymous restaurant in the Old Village. Call ahead to arrange a group cooking lesson, where you can master dishes ranging from rack of lamb to homemade biscotti; then enjoy the end result in the wood-panelled dining room.
2176, ch. du Village

3. Get a bird’s-eye view
Harnessed to the Tremblant Ziplines rope course, 18 metres above ground, you can admire snow-capped mountains and cedars as you swing between platforms, encountering obstacles like suspended log bridges. Two beginner courses, the Nansen and the Johannsen, are ideal for child adventurers, while the Diable (intermediate) and the Géant (advanced) guarantee adrenalin rushes for all ages.

4. Relax in Nordic style
On the shores of the Diable River, Scandinave Spa has outdoor hot and cold baths designed to be used in a hydrotherapy circuit: hot soak, cold dip, rest, repeat. The traditional Scandinavian practice stimulates blood circulation and promotes stress relief, both of which prep your body for a restorative massage.

5. Go mushing
Dog Sledding Tremblant and its team of experienced ecotourism guides offer excursions that begin with a lesson on harnessing the pack of Siberian dogs, followed by an hour-long ride through snow-blanketed hills and forest trails. The journey ends at a cozy cabin, where riders warm up with hot cocoa and cookies.
