There's simply nothing like it in the Rockies...
Panorama Mountain is blessed with some of the finest fall lines in Canada. Rising 4,000 vertical feet above true ski in/ski out lodging and giant slope-side hot pools, Panorama offers more than 2,800 acres of skiable terrain. The mountain has something for everyone, with perfect fall-line cruisers, gently progressive beginner/intermediate terrain, and the exhilarating backcountry style of Taynton Bowl.
Never crowded, with a unique and intimate pedestrian village, Panorama is a mountain playground that is perfect for the whole family.
Panorama also offers daily heli-skiing and snowmobiling right from the village, allowing guests to really discover what the Canadian Rockies are all about.

New Chairlift Perfect for Families and Novices
Open for the 2014/15 winter season, the new four-person chairlift will provide easy access to some old favourites, along with some brand new areas that are perfect for novice & intermediate skiers. Panorama is also improving the current beginner ski zone to compliment the new chair-accessible terrain. The overall result will be a space that is perfect for young families and novice skiers, with terrain that's all about progressive learning and fun.
A huge snowmaking expansion has ensured that the beginner area has great early-season coverage, especially around opening day and Christmas/New Years. This means that Panorama's Mountain Operations team is able to sculpt the natural terrain into an area specifically designed for those learning to ski & snowboard.
When the sun goes down, the lights will come up on the Showoff run for Night-Skiing. You can hop on the Mile 1 high-speed chairlift to ski 1,200 vertical feet and enjoy a mile-long night skiing area. Extend your ski day into the evening. Night skiers can perfect their technique for the next day or just have fun with friends cruising down into the heart of the village.
Seamless transport from Calgary
A direct shuttle service to and from the Calgary International Airport will provide seamless access twice daily. Relax in the coach and take in one of the most breathtaking drives Canada has to offer. This world-famous tour through Banff and Kootenay National Parks lives up to expectations.
