Overview 

Located within the largest heli-skiing area in the world, and with the second biggest vertical in North America, Panorama offers skiing for all abilities. Owners Intrawest have recently expanded the skiable terrain to over 2000 acres and taken the trail total over the 80 mark. They reckon the resort is 'North America's best kept secret.'

Panorama has a fantastic village and is very centrally located, heaps of places to eat drink and be merry. More accommodations are now being built as Intra-west resorts have just brought this resort. Central reservations are great here, ring them up and off you go everything is done for you. Most accommodations here are listed with central res. There are two main areas to stay: village top or bottom, both are ski-in ski-out depending where you are staying and they are linked by a tiny gondola that runs constantly. If you don't like the gondola it's only a 5 minutes stroll or better still strap on the gear and ride across the overpass.

Location

Panorama resort is located two hours drive south of Banff. The drive through Banff and Kootenay National Parks is one of the the most scenic in the world. Nearest International Airport: Calgary - 290 kilometers Nearest Domestic Airport: Calgary - 290 kilometers

EDIT ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Dining

There are many places to eat and all at reasonable prices for what you get. Panorama has a fantastic new daylodge that offers a hearty cheap and tasty breakfast. The pub (Kicking Horse) offers yummy pizzas and finger food. Dinner time, there is basically two family restaurants that could keep you occupied for a few nights then you can move onto the more up-market Toby Creek fine dinning, even here the prices are great. I would suggest a kitchenette if you were staying more than 5 or so nights. There is a small grocery shop that is pretty well stocked although can get expensive if you are feeding a family, jump on the bus and go to town instead is my advice.
