Panorama Mountain Village will officially open for the winter season on Friday, December 9.
Panorama, B.C. - November 10, 2011 – Panorama Mountain Village will officially open for the winter season on Friday, December 9. The resort will welcome this winter with a host of on-mountain enhancements that will keep families and advanced skiers and riders smiling all season long.
Four themed festivals will give Panorama Mountain Village reason to celebrate all season long and skiers and riders are invited to join in the revelry. First up is Panorama’s Mountain Snowflake Festival – Jan 21-22, 2012; Panorama’s Mountain Mardi Gras – Feb 25-26, 2012; the Western themed Panorama’s Mountain Stampede – Mar 17-18, 2012; and finally, to wrap up the season, Panorama’s Mountain Spring Carnival – Apr 7-8, 2012.
Skiers and riders venturing into Taynton Bowl’s expansive big mountain terrain, famed for holding untracked powder for days after a storm, will be able to take advantage of even more fresh tracks with added glading and pruning.
Freestyle riders will find bigger berms and rowdier whoops in the Rockstar Terrain Park’s permanent Skier and Boarder Cross track. The newly extended banked track runs from the top of the park and leads skiers and snowboarders to the medium and large features in the lower half of the park.
Other enhancements to the mountain include a new Snow Tube Park and trail widening on Stumbock’s, a fall line thrill ride where skiers and riders can let their boards run on the steep. The Pine Inn has also been redecorated and refurbished with new carpets, beds and updated bathrooms making this value-oriented slopeside hotel the best deal in Western Canada to ski and stay.
