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 kids ski school makes Panorama a dream ski destination for families as well as thrill-seekers.
