We have chosen Panorama for this year’s trip mainly due to the incredible terrain on offer in the resort and the excellent accommodation options, all within a very short walk or slide to the lifts. Some highlights of Panorama skiing are:
– Just short of 3,000 acres of inbounds terrain (about the same size as Breckenridge, Sunshine or Winter Park)
– 4,200 feet or 1,300+ meters of vertical decent available giving Panorama some of the best fall line skiing in Canada
– Amazing back country style terrain in Taynton Bowl (old heli-ski terrain), some really good terrain for expert skiers and boarders
– Fantastic groomers with some real feel good skiing, the longest run in resort is 6.5km
– No lift lines or crowds, especially during the week
– Night skiing available on Friday and Saturday nights (until 8pm) should anyone have the desire or energy to do more skiing! The night skiing will be included on your lift pass
– RK Heli Ski operate from the resort, incredible experience for those wanting the ultimate thrill on skis or a board
We will also ski a day in Kicking Horse, the transfers and lift passes for this day are included in the price of the holiday.
The resort offer free guiding as we have enjoyed in other North American resorts https://www.panoramaresort.com/explore/listing/mountain-friends
