A couple weeks ago we spent the weekend at Panorama Mountain Resort in B.C.’s Purcell Mountains. The ski hill was developed largely by Intrawest in the 1990s and is designed with families in mind: ski-in/ski-out accommodations around a central village. You can walk, ski or ride the village tram just about everywhere. I’m writing all about our weekend for Snowseekers and the stories will be up in the coming weeks. In the meantime, just in time for Family Day, here are some highlights from our family-friendly ski trip.
Not sure why Europe gets credit for the reverse-bungy contraption, but these harnessed bouncing devices are all the rage at gymnastics places, summer fairs and now, ski resorts. Panorama’s EuroBungy is new this season.
The cheesy stuff at Panorama’s Mile One Hut (at the top of the Mile One chairlift) is delish. Did I mention the dessert? It’s chocolate fondue. Plus there’s wine, so it’s just as fun for adults as kids.
It’s cold and the visibility is extremely poor, but when was the last time you ski-raced your night shadow? That’s what I thought.
The peaky views
The scenery around Panorama is gorgeous; it’s one reason people who come to the resort end up staying on season after season. That, and the skiing.
Thanks for a great family weekend, Panorama!
