Great value, with huge vertical drop and slope-side accommodation, you’ll love Panorama whether you’re a family, intermediate or expert.

A particularly good option for your first Canadian ski trip, Panorama ski holidays appeal to all ages and abilities. The inbound terrain is ideal for intermediates, and there’s a superb ski school for learners.

For advanced skiers, the backcountry options are phenomenal. Panorama has one of the biggest vertical drops in North America, with the incredible Taynton Bowl and the option to go heli-skiing - RK Heliski are based right in the resort, and their daily packages start from three drops in the Purcell Mountains.

Another thing we love about Panorama is the convenience. Slopeside accommodation and little to no queues mean you can be at the summit in minutes, while the compact village has everything on-hand. For more restaurants, bars and a larger supermarket, the shuttle service takes you to nearby Invermere town.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

We loved everything about Panorama. The ski in ski was amazing, we litterally stepped out of our condo and there were the slopes, that combined with vast quiet slopes made it a relaxing ski holiday. Its a great resort to suit all abilities of skiing. The ski school is terrific, my partner, a beginner was fortunate to have 121 tuition on 3 of his morning lessons, the maximum they take in a group lesson is 3. I had a few lessons to improve on my technique and I also had a 121 with an amazing swiss instructor, I had the best morning skiing with her and my technique improved so much. I skied with the Mountain Friends, (free ski guide) they are awesome, so passionate about their mountain and have so much knowledge about it and love to share this with you. We loved soaking our tired joints in the hot baths at the bottom of the slopes. We found there to be just enough good choice of restaurants, we combined this with cooking in the condo. Overall we found the resort to be very friendly and polite, we definitely want to return to Panorama.

Good range of ski runs and terrain. Varied runs and conditions suitable for all abilities. Information updated daily on website and about the resort on groomed runs, conditions and weather. A few runs were closed to general public due to masters and u19 races but this did not negatively impact upon skiing or options available. Given that it was the Easter/Spring break the resort was very quiet. This added positively to the holiday experience with wide-open runs or challenging terrain not overloaded with people. Lift lines were well managed. Unfortunately needed to utilise ski patrol who were prompt and thorough when activated.

Panorama mountain offers something for everyone in terms of skiing and is focusing on expanding its beginner facilities to make it more family-attractive. Its vast expanse means that you never feel crowded on the slopes. Lift passes are comparatively cheap compared to other resorts, but lack flexibility (maybe it's a Canadian thing?), although I do think that ski school prices are on the high side. The only negative of the resort is the very limited selection of places to eat. In general the options are expensive when taking into consideration what they offer. It's an area that the resort has not been able to improve on in the 12 years that I've been going there. I usually self-cater, but that also means taking the bus into Invermere as Panorama's General Store is poorly stocked. A big plus (and one of the main reasons that I keep going back) are the people. The staff are really friendly, and the Mountain Friends hosting service is simply excellent. We did have an issue with desk staff at the ski school, but the manager (Jason) resolved the problem satisfactorily.
