A la montagne versus dans la montagne?
I have a question based on a test I took. It stated that one would say..."pour aller skier a la montagne" ("to go and ski in the mountains").
Why is it, a la montagne and not dans la montagnes?
This question relates to:French lesson "Faire de, jouer à : talking about leisure activities"

You would use 'à la' for different types of vacation destinations describing the different kinds of geographical areas like the countryside, the seaside, the mountains:
à la montagne,
à la mer,
à la campagne
Hope this helps!
