L’ORÉE DU BOIS Pay homage to one of Que­bec’s finest restau­rants on its 40th year in busi­ness in the best way pos­si­ble — by treat­ing your­self to a meal there. L’orée du Bois, one of the most charm­ing places in the province to have a win­ter’s meal, is lo­cated in a for­mer log-cabin school­house in a for­est clear­ing on the doorstep of Gatineau Park, and its tra­di­tional French and re­gional Que­bec cui­sine — think pork ril­lettes, es­car­gots fric­as­see and medal­lions of red deer ( BE­LOW) — will warm you on even the chill­i­est of snowy nights. oree­dubois­restau­rant.com

THE TACO BEAST Ap­plaud Colorado’s Steam­boat Re­sort for hop­ping on the food-truck trend in a way that’s go­ing to be hard to miss: the Taco Beast, North Amer­ica’s first snow­cat-turned-food truck. Be­gin­ning in the 2018-19 ski sea­son, the roam­ing ma­chine will aim to re­de­fine slope­side din­ing by serv­ing Mex­i­can food such as carne asada, break­fast bur­ri­tos and, of course, tacos. steam­boat.com/taco-beast
