Dinner at altitude makes for an unforgettable experience

End your day with a unique to Panorama experience: a summit fondue dinner in your choice of three warm mountain hut locations with gorgeous mountain views! You’ve got to work for your supper though, due to challenging terrain and conditions, this après ski program is limited to very experienced skiers and boarders.

Fondue and skiing go hand in hand, and there’s no shortage of either at Panorama. Catch the last lift to the summit and end your day with an après ski experience at 8,000 feet. The Summit Hut offers an intimate atmosphere and traditional cheese fondue followed by a chocolate fondue. Sit with some wine and take in the breathtaking view before putting on your skis and gliding to the bottom. Enjoy Swiss-style raclette cheese, vegetables and meats on your personal grill over at Elkhorn Cabin, an original structure perched on the mountain where you can sample dozens of local wines, craft beers and liqueurs. For skiers of all abilities, the Mile One hut is located over at the top of Mile One express chairlift, and caters to beginners who would still like to experience a once in a lifetime fondue meal.

Hot pools

Panorama_4467_CMYKYou’ve heard of a hot tub, but how about a hot pool? Panorama boasts Canada’s largest slope-side hot pool, right in the village, and right next to the ski runs. For winter visitors, the Panorama Springs Pools include a 90 degree hot pool, two hot tubs kept around 100 degrees, and a sauna. All Panorama guests have access to the pools, slides and hot tubs with your room key card. You just have to decide on whether to soak before dinner, after dinner, or both.

Yoga on the mountain

Visiting Panorama is supposed to be a vacation, and on a vacation, you should feel refreshed and recharged once it’s over. Join expert Hatha yoga instructor Jody LeBlanc for a calming, rejuvenating introduction to your day with a yoga class in a unique mountain setting. Jody has been practicing yoga for 15 years and will guide you through the class. All skill levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced, as her classes are focused on individual personal progress rather than peer comparisons and competition. Different options are introduced for each pose and individual attention is often offered due to limited class size. Here’s a hint too: yoga plus hot pools equals awesomeness.
