The 1000 Peaks Lodge is Panorama’s brand new 37 unit slopeside accommodation. The building, which was destroyed in a 2013 fire, has been completely re-built from the parkade up and has a variety of studios, 1,2 and 3 bedroom units with full kitchens. Guest will be able to book a stay in the new lodge come the first day of winter.

Panorama is located right in the heart of the Powder Highway. The Powder Highway features 8 world-class ski resorts, 11, epic heli-ski companies, 13 awesome cat ski operators, and a host of Nordic ski trail sites. Smart travelers choose to basecamp at Panorama as the resort lends itself well to an all-inclusive vacation because of the wide variety of activities offered. Its proximity to other Powder Highway destinations is ideal and most can be experienced on day trips.

Like traveling from village to village in the Alps, Panorama’s three mountain huts offer a variety of authentic dining experiences with spectacular views. These cozy and rustic eateries have become an icon at Panorama. Fondue, raclette and bratwurst offerings top the list as all-time favourites. Heli-fondue is a signature experience and should not be missed. Trips start at just over $100 per person. Nowhere else offers a program that lets guests enjoy fondue at the summit of the mountain arriving by helicopter.

Imagine waking up to be whisked by helicopter into 1500 sq. kilometres of backcountry powder paradise in some of the world’s best heliski terrain. Then, after your legs can’t take any more, you return to the comforts of your condo back at the resort to share your experience with friends. Alternatively, you can enjoy a scenic snowmobile tour to an abandoned silver mine high in the alpine. The choice is yours and the beauty of it is Panorama has the luxury of having both right at the resort.


an image Evolving every year.

Experience the steeps and deeps of former heliski terrain by chairlift. One run in Taynton Bowl takes skiers down the full 4,019 vertical feet of the mountain. Choose from an epic ridgetop ride to playful powder bowls. This 750 acre area is absolutely magical for powder enthusiasts. What makes it so special is that, besides unreal snow and terrain, this area is controlled for avalanches and is patrolled. Specialized backcountry equipment and guide services are not required. New this winter is a gladed area which widens the Heli Face trail substantially.

The Discovery Zone, Discovery Quad and Little Ripper Carpet were installed for winter 2014/15 bringing a whole new experience for first timers, families and learners alike. The zone is all about a stress-free introduction to the snow and from there a life-long passion for the mountains. New for 2016 will be the addition of a Burton Riglet Park which will help young children get introduced to the sport of snowboarding.

Officially recognized as the longest ice skating trail in the world, the Windermere Whiteway offers 34 kilometers of skating. A free shuttle provides access from Panorama to the Whiteway, just 20 minutes away.
