Panorama Ski Resort

Panorama ski resort is seated at the base of a mountain etched with deep ridges. The virtually car-free village is set over two levels that are linked by a free gondola. The skiing is incredible in Panorama making for the perfect ski holiday. Forget long straight trails down the hill, and think twisting, turning, undulating, dipping and swerving. Huge views one minute followed by densely forested trails the next. This is a place for adventure, with a comfortable dwelling to ski home to.

This purpose-designed village ensures you are never more than five minutes from the mountain, or anything else. The excellent childcare and ski school make Panorama ski resort a dream destination for families as well as thrill-seekers.

After all that play, Panorama ski resort is a small, quiet sanctuary to rest your weary ski legs. This intimate pedestrian village is perfect for those seeking a lively but laid-back night scene.

Panorama ski resort offers not only downhill skiing in the winter but also excellent heli-skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledging, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating and so much more. From Calgary airport, the scenic 3 hour 45 minute transfer is worth the journey through Banff and Kootenay National Parks.
