Panorama ski resort is seated at the base of a mountain etched with deep ridges. Forget long straight trails down the hill, and think twisting, turning, undulating, dipping and swerving. Steep runs with cliffs. 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 destination for families as well as thrill-seekers.
After all that mountain play, Panorama is a small, quiet sanctuary to rest your weary ski legs. This intimate pedestrian village is perfect for those seeking a lively but laidback night scene. For après-ski, drop in at the T-Bar and Grill for live music, or enjoy a barbecue with the ski school before watching the torchlit ski descent from the comfort of North America's largest slopeside hot pools. Out and about, later on, dining options include steak, pasta and pizza at several tasty restaurants.
Panorama 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.
