The Panorama Nordic network offers more than 20 km of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing. The trails take skiers along the scenic Toby Creek with different routes available for all levels of skiers from beginners to advanced.

Snowshoes allow you to float on top of the snowmaking walking through the forest in the winter easier. Snowshoeing is easy to learn and a great way to enjoy a beautiful day in the forest and snow. There are several different trails around the resort for you to explore independently, or if you prefer a guided tour we host a variety of snowshoe activities throughout the week.
New and Noteworthy:
MONSTROUS TERRAIN & NEW ACCESS: Last winter, Panorama welcomed a 128-acre (52 hectare) expansion to Taynton Bowl, the resort’s off-piste backcountry style terrain. It was the first phase of a multi-stage terrain expansion, opening up a new alpine zone to skiers and riders. This year skiers were able to access the highest point of this terrain by a custom built, 13 passenger snowcat. The Monster X, is equipped with plush seating and a pumping sound system and offers a journey up that’s just as much fun as the descent that follows.
SNOWLICIOUS: Panorama is renowned for its boutique alpine dining scene, and this year the resort kicked things up a notch with the addition of the first snowcat food truck in Canada. A professional kitchen installed on a Prinoth snow groomer, the Snowlicious Mobile Kitchen offers a casual alfresco experience right on the slopes.
