Backcountry In Bounds Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"Panorama is hard to beat following the monstrous 128 acre expansion of Taynton Bowl, bringing four additional double black diamond runs. This terrain is the kind dreams are made of - heliskiing, but without the helicopter! "

Dining in Panorama

On-Mountain Dining

There are three on-mountain 'huts' or cabins in Panorama, all of which are open daily for lunch, and selectively for dinner (dinner reservations required). In addition, Panorama offers the unique Snowlicious Mobile Kitchen which will once again be on the mountain serving up hot dishes and cold brews. This roaming snowcat food-truck is the first in Canada and the perfect place to grab lunch between powder runs.

The Elkhorn Cabin

The Elkhorn Cabin is a traditional Swiss-style mountain cabin situated right on the slopes, midway down ‘Rollercoaster’, and features amazing views out over the valley. If you’re looking to change down a gear and relax the pace somewhat then the Elkhorn is the place for you. Expect homemade soups and traditional raclette backed up by a selection of excellent BC wines and craft beers.

Mile 1 Hut

This tiny mountain hut sits at the top of the Mile One Quad chair and has some of the best views of the resort. This is a classic re-fuelling stop serving grilled burgers, coffees and cakes – perfect for a quick bite to eat or a real hot chocolate around the fire-pit on the extended deck.

Summit Hut

This is the perfect place for a coffee stop or a warm up round the log-burner prior to your monstrous black-diamond adventure into Taynton Bowl, or a cruise down Panorama’s front face. Sitting right at the top of the Summit Chair at 7,759ft, the views are simply spectacular! Expect a wood-heated treat of a cabin serving great burgers, sandwiches and soup as well as real hot chocolate, great local coffee and home-baking plus a selection of alcoholic drinks. On a sunny day, sitting out on the deck looking out over Taynton Bowl sipping a cold drink is something else!!

In-Resort Dining

T-Bar and Grill

The T-Bar & Grill is Panorama’s busy central apres-ski venue. This is a classic sports bar, with a fantastic range of drinks and food on the menu. Situated right at the base of the slopes in the Pine Inn, this is the perfect destination to enjoy a cold beer after your day’s exertions on the slopes, or maybe tuck into a juicy steak. This is a fabulous family-friendly venue offering laid-back apres-ski until the mid-evening. After dark though, the bar gets more energetic with live music and a pool table.

Alto Kitchen & Bar (replaces the Restaurant ElevenFIFTY and Picnic Café)

The old ElevenFIFTY and Picnic Café restaurant which were right in the middle of the resort beside the T-Bar & Grill are being re-developed for winter 2019-20 and will be open for Christmas 2019. The new Alto Kitchen & Bar, brings a new fresh look and an increase in capacity to 110 seats. The new design will take the Italian inspired menu to the next level with the introduction of a Forno Bravo pizza oven as its centrepiece. Open for daily buffet breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. Expect casual, upbeat dining featuring homemade pasta and pizzetas.

Fireside Café & Lounge

Before you head out to the slopes, call in at the new 30 person Fireside Café & Lounge for a quick breakfast and a steaming hot cup of locally made Kicking Horse coffee. Also open for lunch, the café serves a variety of delicious baked goods, soups and sandwiches, all freshly prepared. There’s a pick-up window for coffee on the run and there’s wine service on select evenings.

The Cabin Smokehouse

The Cabin Smokehouse is located in the Early Grey Lodge just behind the 1000 Peaks Lodge close to the resort centre. This is a true Canadian casual dining experience featuring communal tables where you are sure to mix with the locals. Expect an interesting and family-friendly menu, backed up by a full bar with some nice touches like mulled wine!

Thunderbird Pizza

Thunderbird Pizza bakes fresh pizzas to order and also serves up lasagna, chicken, wings, and Caesar salad. Eat-in or take-away, Thunderbird Pizza now operates out of the lower village and guest can access it via the village gondola or order-in. Open daily, 4pm until late.

Cappuccino Bar

Located beside Mountain Outfitters in the Tamarack Lodge, The Cappuccino Bar welcomes guests with a great cup of coffee, including expresso, cappuccino and latte, as well as hot chocolate and snacks.

Jackpine Pub

Order a pizza from Thunderbird Pizza to enjoy in this friendly pub! Situated in the Horsethief Lodge, close to the base of the Village Gondola, Jackpine Pub features local beers and unique cocktails in a traditional Alpine pub setting. Open from 3pm until 11pm (minors welcome until 8pm). Jackpine is the new hotspot for Sunday après with a very popular adults only trivia night.

The Great Hall

Located at the base of the mountain in Panorama's Upper Village, the Great Hall has everything you need to refuel and get back on the slopes. The Great Hall offers fresh grab and go options, such as sushi, sandwiches and salads. It’s also a great place to get a hot meal like burgers, pizza, soups and stir fries.
