A Classroom Unplugged

Being outdoors and in the mountain provides the opportunity to explore and learn while having fun. Panorama Mountain Resort provides a place where students can have a clear and open mind. Student-centered designed programs leave behind pressures, distractions and barriers and make way for new experiences and building lasting memories.

Given our location and elevation, higher learning for your students takes on a whole new meaning. Instruction in alpine skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing along with tailored outdoor education, provide students with a deeper understanding of the mountain environment and new skills in sport, leadership, decision making and career planning. By making the inaccessible, accessible an active outdoor lifestyle can be indelibly imprinted. Learning how to enjoy winter is the goal but instilling a sense of self pride and celebrating achievements along the journey is what really counts.

Comfortable, convenient and clean. Choose from a wide range of room configurations and building types. From budget style hotel rooms to condos and townhomes with full kitchens and laundry facilities, we will help find what is the right fit for your group.


Located in both the upper and lower sections of the village, all condo units feature a full sized kitchen, a comfortable living room, gas fireplace, TV, full size bathroom(s), and a balcony (not guaranteed in studio units).

The outdoor education your student will experience is designed for fun to ensure participation. Carefully crafted, these programs will also have students building skills transferable outside of a mountain setting.

There are programs specific to Junior High and Senior High students. Additionally, an experience like this helps inspire students to think about a potential career in the tourism and resort industry that can play a role in future life management planning.

With so many things to do we can help you customize an experience for your school that will keep the kids busy and learning and experiencing all the mountains have to offer.
