Panorama Mountain Resort

Nestled in B.C.’s Purcell Mountain Range, Panorama Mountain Resort spreads across nearly 3,000 acres and offers more than 120 runs. The site is known for its long descents, its longest being a double-black diamond dubbed “Wild Thing” spanning 6.5 kilometres. The resort also offers downhill skiers and snowboarders open bowls, ridges and chutes to ride. Those who choose to stay at Panorama have the option to ski-in or out, and can access the expansive outdoor pools and hottubs. Thrill-seeking visitors can also book heli-skiing and snowboard adventures to reach new terrain, fresh snow and more mountain views.
