We talked to locals to find the best ski-mountain accommodation:


Collingwood, ON

Best Accommodation

The Lodges at Blue Mountain. More options for staying on-mountain than anywhere else, with vacation rentals, condos and chalets. (bluemountainlodges.ca)

Giving Tree Bed & Breakfast. Stay in the Karma Cabin and enjoy the organic, vegetarian breakfast and the TV-free, solar-power scene. (givingtreebedandbreakfast.com)

Pretty River Valley Country Inn. These comfortable rooms with wood fireplaces include breakfast. Solid value, says Jennie Elmslie,, co-owner of local Free Spirit Tours. (prettyriverinn.com)

Tremblant, QC

Best Accommodation

Le Sommet des Neiges. Ski in and out, suite style accommodation, perfect for families. (tremblant.ca)

Le Boise Du Lac. Far enough away from the action to be quiet, close enough to be convenient. (boisedulac.com)

Auberge du Coq de Montagne. Local photographer Daniel Cooper suggests staying in the quainter and quieter old village area, where you can cross-country ski all over the place. (819 425-3380)

Quebec City, QC

Best Accommodation

Auberge Saint-Antoine. Rated the number-one hotel in Canada by Travel & Leisure magazine. (saint-antoine.com)
