Panorama, B.C. – October 26, 2012 – Panorama Mountain Village is very excited to celebrate the resort's 50th anniversary season. This milestone year will be filled with themed events aimed to engage families, including special tributes that acknowledge the resort's colorful past. "We feel it's important to pay homage to the resort's founders and the rich ski culture that has made Panorama Mountain Village what it is today - a destination like no other." says Rick Jensen, President and CEO of Panorama.
For the second year in a row, the mountain has received a major makeover which will greatly improve skiers' enjoyment of the variety of natural terrain. In follow up to last winter's hugely successful widening of Stumbock's Run, the trail crew took on multiple runs this fall, expanding and reclaiming further terrain. This year's glading efforts took place in Taynton Bowl, Extreme Dream Zone and the popular Sun Bowl.
Nearly a quarter of Taynton Bowl was gladed, opening up C-Spine and other runs including Sidewinder & Surf. "We can't wait to lay some fresh tracks down in the newly gladed Taynton Bowl. The runs were already amazing and now we'll have top to bottom, perfectly spaced trees down a huge selection of runs," says Chris Elder, Director of Sales and Marketing. The Extreme Dream Zone saw Surf thinned out while the Sun Bowl received new runs cut through the trees on the far skier's left. "The Sun Bowl is very popular with our guests looking to venture off the groomed runs, but who aren't quite ready for the steeps of Taynton Bowl," added Elder. "The swaths cut through the low lying evergreens will provide interesting terrain that's not overly challenging". In total, over 280 acres of terrain were gladed for winter 2013.
With the purchase of a new Prinoth high tech grooming machine, the great terrain of Panorama will continue to be manicured to perfection, providing a cruising experience that's better than ever.
The resort also has a wide variety of value driven packages available to guests this winter. The ski & stay 'All Thrills No Frills' package includes slopeside condo lodging from $99 per person, per night. The 'Sensational Family' Ski package includes all that a family of four could want, including tube park tickets and a $200 gift card. Sensational package from $299 per FAMILY per night.*
