Another stop on the Eastern leg of the Powder Highway, Panorama is just 3.5 hours from Calgary.
The resort is famous for its long, well-groomed cruiser runs and large hot pool complex at the base area.
An ample snow making system and top-notch grooming program ensure perfect conditions for big, fast carving turns, which always bring a smile. The stats say it all: 1,224 metres of vertical, 2,847 acres of terrain, 120 runs and 10 lifts. A multitude of Ski-in, ski-out accommodation at the base makes this a perfect ski holiday destination. New for this season: SKIDATA RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology will be implemented at the resort, providing efficient, hassle-free lift access to speed up your skiing.
Go to Taynton Bowl for a bit of side-country raw goodness. This patrolled in-bounds area has an out-of-bounds feel and is enough to get the adrenal glands going. Hit up the hot pools after skiing, or just spend all day soaking there.
At Panorama, golf rules summer. The Grey Wolf Course is a must stop for even the most seasoned of golfers. The Invermere area also has several courses. Lift-accessed mountain biking, hiking and kids programming make Pano a good choice for some time with the family.
