Panorama was voted North American resort of the Year in the 2016 World Snow Awards, and it’s easy to see why. This is a fantastic resort offering plenty of quiet, snow-sure runs for all abilities to enjoy. The resort is a great choice for families and intermediates who love to cruise groomed trails. With 129 runs, 75% of the ski area is perfect for beginners and intermediates.
The pedestrian friendly village is purpose designed around skier convenience ensuring that you are never more than 5 minutes away from the base of the mountain. There’s plenty of slopeside ski-in/ski out accommodation available which means wherever you stay you are only minutes away from the lifts each morning.
The compact resort has a laid back atmosphere and there are a number of dining, shopping and apres-ski options in the skier village. There is also a ‘dinner bus’ which takes you to the nearby town of Invermere for a wider variety of restaurants.
Panorama has one of the longest vertical drops in North America and intermediates will be in their element here enjoying the quiet, uncrowded, wide, interesting cruisers that twist and wind down the mountain back into the village. You’ll be discovering stunning new runs all week. Beginners are well looked after with a dedicated learning area and one of Canada’s best ski school programmes. There are plenty of wide, gentle green and blue runs ideal for helping beginners to progress quickly.
Advanced skiers will be drawn toward Taynton Bowl. This area was previously used for backcountry heli-skiing. However, as part of the resorts planned expansion, 128 acres of this terrain is now lift accessible and has been incorporated into Panorama’s official resort boundary. This new area provides four double-black diamond runs that were previously only accessible when heli-skiing. Aptly named The Monster, Spectre, Ridgeback and Get Out these are exhilarating new runs – think heli-skiing without the heli! The new terrain expansion is part of the resorts plan to extend its boundary by 500 acres over the next few years.
For the more adventurous skiers, Panorama is home to Canada’s highest heli-ski operator, RK Heli Ski who have a heli-plex located in the resort. If you’ve ever dreamt of heli-skiing then Panorama is the ideal place to try out a day of back country skiing.
You don’t have to be an expert skier to try heli-skiing. RK Heli-Ski has a one day package specifically catering for intermediate skiers and first time heli-skiers with equipment and lunch provided as part of the package.
