Panorama was established in 1962 by a group of local ski enthusiasts that wanted to create a local ski hill. The name Panorama was influenced by the near by hiking area called Panorama Plateau, as the name suggest the vistas from anywhere in this resort are panoramic and awe inspiring.
Panorama is a quintessential alpine village, the resort is now owned by Intrawest, the company that is behind the world renewed ski resorts like Whistler & Mammoth Lakes, however this resort is more intimate with the entire village being ski in ski out and the maximum capacity is around 2000 beds so while you have the operations and facilities of a world class resort, the scale is much more intimate.
Panorama has a mountain rise of over 1,220 meters with varied terrain, 75% of terrain suitable for beginner to intermediate skiers & boarders. This resort is great for families and all ski, mountain & wilderness enthusiasts. Panorama Resort could be considered an alternative to the bigger resorts such as Whistler. The village offers everything you need from cafeteria style to casual & fine dinning, general store, retail shops, ski school, spa and Canada’s largest slopeside Hot Springs perfect after a day on the mountain.
