Basic Info

Panorama Mountain Village Located on the western edge of the Canadian Rockies, about 2 hours west of Banff, through the picturesque Kootenay National Park is Panorama Mountain Village. The mountain rises a full 4,000 vertical feet above the village, but it's not until you slide off the Summit Quad that the true scale of the terrain becomes apparent. All around, as far as the eye can see, are snow covered peaks and untouched forests. Below skiers and riders will find a variety of trails just right for their ability. You can carve down a World Cup race track, make relaxed turns descending crowd free cruisers with your family, take on the 'backcountry style' lines of Taynton Bowl, or try freestyle riding in the Rockstar Terrain Park. At Panorama the mountain fun does not end at 4:00pm. Skiing with Night Skiing, off the Mile 1 Quad (380metres), which is included with your lift pass. New for the winter 2011-2012 is a 3 lane snow tube park that is nearly 500 meters long! Panorama is known for its immense mountain, but it's the smaller-by-design village that makes it extra special and a favourite in the eyes of destination skiers. Absorb the resort's easy ambience with 100% slopeside condos, townhomes and hotel rooms nestled around the base area or accessible by gondola. Forget the daily loading and unloading of your vehicle or clambering onto a bus laden with skis - at Panorama all the amenities and activities to make your vacation one to remember are just steps away. Should you tire of Panorama's vast network of 115 trails, try heliskiing with RK Heliski. Flying from the heart of the village, and specializing in one-day trips, their three-descent package is perfect for intermediate riders new to big mountains and deep powder. New friends are made in Panorama Snow School's fun environment. Professional instructors put as much emphasis on teaching as enjoyment. Take a dip in the steaming waters of the Panorama Springs pools - Canada's largest slopeside outdoor hot pools, or stroll through the picturesque village at night taking time to shop for local artisan crafts and the latest gear at the Final Gate. Panorama offers a wide variety of dining options spread throughout the Village and right up to the summit. From the quick & casual to the elegant & cozy the authentic fresh cuisine is sure to delight skiers.
