So Panorama, my 30th North American ski resort, I've a lot to compare it to! I don't usually ski 7 days in one resort (only previously at Whistler) and when I booked I wasn't sure whether I might get bored. Not at all. I'm a solo traveller for ski trips and decided to ski most days with the Mountain Friends who are volunteers, mostly retired local people. Don't let their age fool you though, these people can ski! You can join groups based on whether you want to ski black, blue or mixed runs and they just take you to the best runs dependent on conditions each day, or in fact where you ask them to go. They also have a beer and socialise at the end of the day, really nice people. I am happy skiing green through to double black diamond runs, especially when the sun is shining as it was every day I was there (1st week in March). No crowds or lift lines whatsoever. Loads of variety to the runs and with snow overnight on a few nights, great conditions. Stayed in the Pine Inn which is not the height of luxury but clean, comfortable and perfectly ok. Dining options are fairly limited and typical fare for North American ski resorts. Food was good quality though and reasonably priced. Lets be honest though you don't go to ski in North America for the dining options, you go for the snow quality, access all areas inbounds and the laid back friendly vibe. The 4 hour evening drive from Calgary airport is a bit of a drag after a long flight so you may want to consider an overnight airport hotel stop, but the day time drive back to the airport via Banff allows you to see the stunning scenery. I met so many people who return to Panorama time and again, and many first timers who said they would be back. I highly recommend this resort. Oh and as usual Ski Safari organised everything perfectly including a day trip to Kicking Horse (I've been there before, don't consider it unless you want to ski a lot of the time on double black diamond runs).
