THERE’S MORE TO T H E M O U N TA I N S What does ‘more’ really mean? At our resort, more means discovering new perspectives. It’s about experiencing the Pure Canada found in high places, among good people in a spectacular setting.

What’s so amazing about Panorama? For some it’s the amazing adventures. For others, it’s the solace. There are those who stay to get away from it all. And there are those who visit because everything’s here. We’ve heard it again and again: “These mountains are magical.” Go ahead, call it magic. But we’re also of the opinion that a summer vacation should be a vacation.

1.800.663.2929 \ PanoramaResort.com

And a mountain resort should be a resort. And those who journey to be here in the mountains are treasured guests and we treat them 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 are looking for ‘more.’ That’s our kind of magic.

There’s certainly no shortage of reasons to vacation at Panorama Mountain Resort. So choose a reason, and come on up. See you soon!

T O M O R R O W ’ S F O R E C A S T:

BRILLIANT!

( The art of looking ahead. ) Some long to be in the mountains. Others simply belong in the mountains. Panorama has been a destination resort for 50 plus years, but for discerning enthusiasts it’s also been a place with a deeper connection. For many, Panorama is where the love of mountains is born, and it is a destination to return to again and again. For some, however, it is a place to invest in, a place to call home. This is no upstart, or short-term play. Panorama is one of Canada’s original and earliest operating resorts. For over half a century it’s weathered market fluctuations, developed strategically, and planned for the future.

Sometimes ‘more to the mountains’ means connecting with a higher place, and investing in a brilliant story together.

5

A legacy of smart planning has enabled Panorama to offer distinctive value at some of the most competitive rates in the Canadian mountain resort real-estate market. Vacation home ownership in the heart of this fully built-out resort with full amenities is incredibly affordable.

Take in breathtaking views from the summit, then follow Taynton Ridge to rolling singletrack and onto Goldie Junction. Relax by Goldie Lake before choosing your descent option.

Why Winter? The secret is in the silence of the snowfall. It’s in the hollers of the hedonists, hell-bent on the pursuit of the deep, the steep, and the soft. It’s discerned in the surgical arcs across a canvas of corduroy. It’s felt in the rumble of the rotor, the sting on the cheeks, and the glow in the legs. Why Winter? It’s seen in the hot pools under a cold night sky. It’s apparent in the miles of brilliant mountain vistas. It’s in the hearts of those who make this place special. And it’s in the minds of those who return again and again to this mountain resort. Why Winter? Perhaps it’s because Panorama is one of Canada’s most established resort villages, and has
