Panorama Mountain Resort

Boasting over 2,800 acres of terrain & an average of 5 meters of snow this is the ideal place to spend a working holiday in Canada!
With wide open fall-line cruisers, powder-filled tree lines, and the steep and deep chutes, you will find yourself in a winter lover’s paradise if you choose to work at Panorama Mountain Resort.
The ski area is perfect for many skiers as 75% of the runs are suitable for beginners or intermediates, but for the more advanced riders you can head to Taynton Bowl for some black diamond runs. Previously a Heli-skiing tenure, the area is now within bounds, so the slopes are patrolled, avalanche controlled and no backcountry gear is needed. It’s a great place to find powder stashes days after a dump of snow. The two terrain parks are packed full with rails, boxes, step downs/ups and true table tops.
After a long day on the mountain you can rest your bones in the natural hot springs or play in the pools and water slides! Events are part of the package at Panorama Mountain Resort, with ski and snowboard demo days, live concerts, snow festivals and more.
