Last winter, Panorama Mountain Resort recorded its busiest snow season in more than a decade. On the back of this continued growth, and an extremely strong summer, the resort is again spending millions to enhance the guest experience.
“Over the past few years our investments have largely been on the mountain and at Greywolf Golf Course.” said Steve Paccagnan, Panorama’s President and CEO, “We’re focused on ensuring the experience on our slopes always exceeds the expectations of skiers and riders, so we’ve been busy on the mountain again this year. That same level of quality, fun and excitement will be seen in the village too, with close to $2 million spent on superb new culinary establishments.”
New Crave Worthy Dining
Opening in December, two brand new outlets will bring a heightened level of elegance and sophistication to the resort’s dining scene. Panorama has partnered with award-winning design team, FRANK Architecture & Interiors to create the stylish spaces. Based in Calgary, FRANK are credited with designing some of that city’s top restaurants and bars.
- Lead by Executive Chef Vincent Stufano, Alto Kitchen & Bar will plate up rustic Italian style pizza from a striking Forno Bravo oven, the centerpiece of the restaurant, along with a diverse menu that will satisfy the most avid foodie at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- Fireside Café & Lounge will serve up locally roasted coffee and crave worthy baked goods by day and transition to a laid-back wine lounge by night.
- Canada’s first snowcat food-truck, Snowlicious Mobile Kitchen, will serve up mitten approved hot food and cold beer right on the slopes. A gourmet meat pie bakery will also open this season.
Monster Terrain Expansion Continues
The resort continues to expand its offering of steep and deep, adding another four trails and more unnamed monstrous lines after extensive summer glading. The area is accessible by the Monster X, a 13-seat passenger snowcat that provides a paid shuttle ride to the highest point of the terrain.
2022 FIS World Junior Alpine Skiing Championships
Panorama will welcome athletes from around the world when it hosts the FIS World Junior Alpine Skiing Championships in 2022. The resort will host the first of several important events in preparation, beginning with the Canadian National Alpine Championships, March 25 – 29, 2020.
Independence and Ongoing Improvement
In a time of resort consolidation, Panorama Mountain Resort remains privately owned and fiercely independent. In time for winter, the resort has also installed more leading snowmaking technology, purchased a new Prinoth snow groomer and completed earthworks to improve several popular trails.
Panorama will open exclusively for alpine race training on November 8, and will host national teams from Canada, Switzerland, France, Slovenia and Chile. The resort will open to the public December 6, 2019 – April 12, 2020.
