How Much Does it Cost for A Family to Ski at Panorama Mountain Resort?

Panorama Resort is located just outside of Invermere, British Columbia in the Columbia Valley. It attracts visitors from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, the United States, Germany and Australia. Its world-class terrain and most space per skier make it an ideal family destination. Plus the small village, friendly vibe, and champagne powder just add to the magic. We recently spent 5 days in the Columbia Valley and broke down the costs for a family to visit.
