Who makes the decisions regarding operations this coming winter?

Panorama is an independently owned and operated resort. Our management team lives in BC’s Columbia Valley and have their boots in snow every day. Our plan is guided by federal and provincial guidelines and best practices, agencies like Interior Health and associations like the CWSAA (Canada West Ski Areas Association). We also stay in close contact with resort operators around the world and sincerely thank our colleagues in Australia and New Zealand for sharing learnings from the Southern Hemisphere winter. They’ve already experienced what we are about to.

Who will make sure the rules are followed?

We are in this together. Our team will follow the guidelines set out in our operating plan and protocols and we expect you to do the same. You're at the resort to relax and have fun. If everyone follows the rules, then we'll avoid unpleasant discussions and ensure that our season is a long one. 

Everything is subject to change.

When it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic, each day comes with new announcements, policies, guidelines, or unexpected situations. Know that we’ll do all we can to ensure you have a fantastic winter experience, while placing absolute priority on the health and safety of our community. Things can and probably will change; we’ll be sure to let you know if they do.
