Top Ten Reasons to Visit
But we bet you'll leave with many more.
#1 - Your Rocky Mountain dream is the Panorama reality.
The drive from anywhere to Panorama will be one of the highlights of your vacation, but your first view of the resort will really take your breath away. It's exactly like those stunning photos you've been looking at in ski magazines. An intimate village of glistening lights sits at the base of a mountain that literally reaches to the sky. We’ve heard it again and again “these mountains are magical”. Go ahead call it magic because you know tomorrow is going to be one of the best days ever!
#2 - Brilliant Adventures.
For some it’s the adventure and they visit because everything’s here. Golfing, hiking, biking, rafting ATVing and the list goes on and on. In fact there's so much going on at Panorama that it's often easy to forget that we're here for the mountain and taking a breather to enjoy the solace is quite alright too. Whether you’re here to pack in all the adventure you can handle or if you’re here to stay to get away from it all we’re confident this piece of paradise will deliver soul food.
#3 - Flex Packaging.
We've been to mountain top Yoga sessions with Jodi (you might just meet her), so we're some of the most flexible people you'll ever meet. Seriously, call us and tell us what you need from your vacation, and we'll flex and make it happen for you. Choose the number of nights you want to stay and the which activities you want to enjoy and we’ll package your perfect holiday. You'll also save money because we won't tell you what you have to do.
#4 - PanoKids.
“The kids are up…to all kids of fun!” Q: What happens when you combine kids with fresh air, mountains and more fun than you can throw a bouncy castle at? A: Sleep. But while they’re awake, there’s mountains of fun and programs for kids. From bouncy castles to waterslides and chairlift rides, kids have lots to smile about. And parents do too! Because Panorama’s children’s programs are brilliantly staffed and organized, while the kids are away parents can play!
#5 - You don't need wheels.
Your Rocky Mountain vacation doesn't need to start each day with an early wake-up, a battle with the kids to get them moving, and then a commute by bus or car. At Panorama, the Village is compact so dining, shopping and activities are usually just a few steps from the door of your hotel room, condo or town home. The free Village Gondola connects the Upper and Lower Village and runs until late-evening. Feel free to park your car and then leave it!
#6 - Canada's largest mountainside pools and waterslides.
At some resorts you look across to other hotels and wonder why you didn't book the one with the best pool or the biggest hot tubs. Here, all lodging guests (and that means you too) enjoy unlimited access to one of the most enjoyable pool complexes you've ever seen in the mountains which is complete with 2 waterslides and a splash pad. After a day of play on one of North America's great mountains, submerge yourself in a warmth that is unique to Panorama.
#7 - Nature, not pretension.
We’re of the opinion that a summer vacation should be a vacation. And a mountain resort should be a resort. And those who journey to be here in the mountains are treasured guests and treated as such. We believe mountains make memories and breathe new life into experiences like never before. We hold it a high honour to share our resort with those who share this possibility with us. People that choose this resort are here because they love the mountains and they want to share good times with family and friends. We don't care what you drive and we don't mind what you wear, we're always just happy that you are here!
#8 - For every mountain, there’s a valley.
Some of Panorama’s best adventures are situated where the mountains begin, at Invermere on the Lake. Invermere on the Lake is situated in the beautiful Columbia Valley, just a 20 minute drive from Panorama Mountain Village. This quaint downtown district rests beneath the Rocky Mountains and boasts a relaxed atmosphere with trendy, funky boutiques and fine restaurants, cafés, pubs, galleries, gift and specialty shops, grocery stores, pharmacies, a bookstore, a deli and bakery. There’s street markets, summer events, a coffee roastery, craft beer, and more. The Columbia Valley is also is home to hot springs in both Fairmont and Radium, as well as numerous public beaches and parks. Lake Windermere offers incredible opportunities for boating, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming and other water sports.
#9 - The smiles are genuine.
There are some pretty clever people working at Panorama; employees who could choose to serve at the biggest and brightest resorts on the planet. They chose Panorama for all the reasons you are planning to vacation here and that's why they smile (and smile a lot). Life in one of the world's most spectacular mountain playgrounds is fantastic and our team is happy to share this place with you.
#10 - World Class Golf.
Golfers from around the world include Greywolf Golf Course as one of the must-do courses in their lifetime. The course is designed by talented Canadian architect Doug Carrick, who has built many of Canada’s best, contemporary courses and features several stunning holes that create lasting impressions. The dynamite collection of par-3s, is capped by the diabolical Cliffhanger hole — unquestionably one of the best in the world. With beautifully sculpted bentgrass fairways and hair-raising elevation changes, a single round at Greywolf may only be surpassed by playing another round. We’re so lucky to have Greywolf on site and 8 other top notch courses nearby.
#11 - It's cool to be different.
Who hasn't been to one of those really big, famous resorts? It's a bit like a tattoo really, everyone has one now so there's nothing too edgy about it. Come to Panorama and you'll ride a resort that's a little off the beaten track, a hidden gem that will tell others that you're different and still have some exploration left in you. You may not leave with Panorama on your chest but it sure will be in your heart.
We could just keep going...
We promised ten great reasons to choose Panorama Mountain Village and actually gave you eleven. We could list many more but we'd rather you spend time with us and start building your own list. We're looking forward to riding the chair with you soon.
