One of the coolest aspects of Panorama Resort is the fact they have such a centralized village that has an above average selection of accommodations for basically anyone’s needs! Whether it is rooms big enough for the whole family, a fancy suite for two, or a shared room in the Hostel, you have a very good chance of finding what you want and still get to be on-mountain. Not to mention, there are massive hot pools located in the upper village that are open for all of the lodging guests.
As for us paid professional ski bums that will be potentially working at Panorama, this doesn’t mean a whole lot; yet, the did not slack on the staff accommodations. For the staff within their first year(or two seasons) a fairly welcoming lodge offers 96 people individual rooms for $15.00 a night. This means for around $450.00 a month, inclusive, you get to live on mountain, never having to drive to work or miss out on any of the action, on or off the hill 😉
As i sit in Nelson with a seemingly endless pile of homework, I can not help but dreaming of spring skiing and Panorama! Web cam shot looks sick, and theres 17 CMS forecasted within the next few days.

Let me live vicariously through you and take a visit to Pano this weekend!
On topic of the summer mountain bike park at Panorama, I found a very interesting job posting that I am highly considering for this summer, or even next!
Bike Park Trail Crew – Summer
||Full Time Seasonal
||May 26, 2014
Though the pay is not much compared to my Trail crew position at Canada Olympic Park last summer, it would be a great opportunity to make a great impression of my self at the resort and would also allow me to build upon my existing skills leading me into my career in the ski industry.
Many more summer employment opportunities can be viewed online on Panorama’s website under “Employment”. Definitely worth giving a peep if your interested in working there!
After being to many really interesting resorts in Western Canada so far, I might have found a new favourite!
There are so many contributing factors for my new found love of Panorama, but I think the main reason was simply the overall experience I had while I was there. I was not able to ride much due to a knee injury but from the hot pools and sauna, to the wicked groomer ride I went on in the middle of the night, the staff and the resort it self gave me an extra special feel and I can’t wait to go back.
Learn more about this incredible mountain and why I fell for it so fast by staying tuned for more!
