Panorama Mountain Village is a ski mountain in the Canadian Rockies that has something for everyone. Get lost in their expansive double black diamond glades, cut the corduroy of miles of groomed cruisers or learn your first turns on their unique novice-only trails.

Panorama gets an average of 188 inches (479 cm) of snow each year, which sticks around thanks to its average winter temperature of 25 F (-5 C). If the snows just don’t come, Panorama still has 40% of the trails with snowmaking capabilities.

The resort has a base elevation of 3,800 feet (1,155 m) and summit elevation of 7,800 feet (2,375 m). Thus, their vertical rise is a jaw dropping 4,000 feet (1,220 m).

Panorama has 930 square miles of terrain dedicated to heli-skiing. (Panorama Mountain Village)

The 120 trails and bowls spread across 2,847 acres at the ski resort are served by nine lifts. The terrain breaks down to 20% beginner, 55% intermediate and 25% for experts only. Never Never Land in the Taynton Bowl is the longest run at 3.4 miles (5.5 km).

The Show Zone Ski & Snowboard Park is a great place to ride some rails and perfect your box tricks. Open late under lights!

The resort also offers heli-skiing on the edge of the famous Bugaboos in the Purcell Mountains. Panorama has the largest heli-skiing dedicated area, at 930 square miles (1,500 square kilometers), which gets a stunning 36 feet (1,100 cm) of snow annually. You’ll never forget a trip to this spectacular scenery with expansive glaciers, quality glade skiing and limitless adventures!

Panorama is owned and operated by Panorama Mountain Village Inc., which is made up of a group of local homeowners and investors in British Columbia.

The resort has skiing and snowboarding in the winter (December to mid April) and golfing at Greywolf Golf Course in summer (early May to early October). Greywolf is an 18-hole, 7,140-yard, par 72 course. On-mountain accommodations at Panorama can host up to 3,000 people at once.

Panorama Mountain Village is located in ski-resort rich British Columbia, 308 km west of Calgary, Alberta. To reach the resort, take the Trans Canada Highway west from Calgary to Highway 93 south to Invermere. Continue on 93 18 kilometers west to the ski area. It’s also just 2 hours from Banff.
