Panorama Mountain Resort
Panorama is a four-season destination resort that offers skiing, golf, lift-accessed mountain biking and an abundance of recreational activities and events.
The resort was named “North American Resort of the Year” in the 2016 World Snow Awards. Located on British Columbia’s famed Powder Highway, Panorama offers winter enthusiasts 4,265 feet of vertical descent (Top 10 in Canada), wide-open fall-line cruisers, powder-filled tree lines and the steep and deep exhilaration of Taynton Bowl.
The Panorama Nordic Centre, located in the lower village (access from the lower parking lot), or across the suspension bridge from the Village Gondola, offers more than 20 km of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing. The trails take skiers along the scenic Toby Creek. Different routes are available for all levels of skiers from beginners to advanced.
RK Heliski makes Jumbo dreams come true. For close to 50 years, RK Heliski has been sharing their passion for deep powder heliskiing and snowboarding. The legendary Jumbo Valley and many others comprise perfectly-gladed tree runs, whereas the higher elevations of the Purcell Mountains (3,000m+) offer open bowls and glaciated runs.
