FRESH from a bone-jangling morning exploring Whistler Blackcomb’s corduroy slopes, my snowmobile ride through virgin back country is ideal for rounding off a perfect day. With a beginner’s course behind me, I turn up the pace. Is my exhilaration zooming through old-growth Canadian forest more about pristine mountain views or the sheer relief of finally being able to take a seat and rest my weary legs? Either way, the experience is memorable. A three-hour lesson and tour, including a stop for hot chocolate and barbecue at Trapper’s Cabin, is $170 a person.

Rick Stein’s Far Eastern Odyssey: The world’s favourite fish fancier is in Sri Lanka (string hoppers, cashew-nut curry and chilli crab) and Bali (ceremonial roast pork and seafood galore); it’s a repeat but still feels fresh and his recipes are deliciously achievable.
