The wandering wordsmith is back for another season of masochistic 5:30 AM starts – he may have made his bed, but it seems he is unable to lie in it! Here is his bio:
A transplanted Aussie via the UK, he can still be heard lamenting that with his accent, he used to be special around here! Having been on the mountain more winter’s than not over the last decade and a half, he’s seen the constant evolution that is Panorama, and still finds plenty to turn his head amongst the massive variety of terrain.
Enjoying the easy option of chairlifts up and gravity feeding down on either one or two planks, Evan spends the majority of his winter on the mountain. Be it teaching with the Ski & Ride Centre, volunteering adaptive technique with PASS, or simply making tracks for the pure joy of it, he’s rarely off snow for any great length of time. (That said, he can often be found perking up on a Lusti’s coffee, or regaling in the T-Bar after the odd social lubricant – we all know what happens with all work and no play!)
Working in conjunction with the Panorama Avalanche Office, and with backup provided by the Countess of Accumulation, he intends to info-tain you throughout the season, direct you to the well groomed and the rough diamonds alike, and provide the interpretations that are the stories behind the figures. Now buckle up, strap in and ride off into the sunset...
This offer is a great way to escape to the mountains and save during off peak-days!Discover More

Panorama Mountain Resort's alpine meteorological forecast is provided by RWDI - a meteorological consulting and engineering firm with extensive experience in microclimate and mountain meteorology.
The initial data for this forecast is extracted from the leading US regional (WRF NAM, short term) and global (GFS, long term) weather models four times daily and post-processed by RWDI to account for the unique mountain environment near Panorama.
This post processing is required to increase our forecast performance and to provide a site specific forecast in a mountainous environment. The post processing algorithms were developed by engineers and meteorologists and are based on many years of experience with Canadian weather.
Local observations are continuously used to verify and refine the forecasts. This ensures a very high degree of accuracy that frequently exceeds generic statistical methods and raw weather model output and is what distinguishes our forecast product from others.
