                            Panorama is beautiful as a ski destination in itself but the this accommodation topped off the trip as a wonderful place to return to after a day of outdoor activity. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished, especially the master bedroom at the top floor. The bed (though a bit soft for my personal preference) was comfy by most standards. The bathroom felt classier than most hotel baths in Canada. The separate clothing closet meant that we could change and use the bath without disturbing our kid who was sleeping in the provided cot in the bedroom. Our party of 14 (7 kids aged between 3 and 9) had more than enough space for all. The lodge was well stocked with entertainment like Wii, DVDs, mini pool and hockey table for the kids to be occupied while indoors. The kitchen was well equipped (better than my own home maybe!) and served us well since we cooked or ate in almost all our meals. Most importantly everything was clean and well maintained, with sufficient linens and towels provided. With young kids, having a washer and dryer was really handy. The only improvement we would have appreciated was if there was more heating in the ground floor room, which can get quite chilly. Would have made enjoying the tv and bunk beds there a lot cosier. Excellent place to stay! Would definitely go back if we can gather a travel party to go with us again :)

                            Owner response: Thank you for your feedback. The heating vents on the lower floor are adjustable and are located in the ceiling. Simply turning the vent to open it or close it should allow for better control of the temperature in that room. Also, I would make one correction to the "recommended for" - we can not accommodate pets. - Lorie Grundy

                            This is our third time staying at this gorgeous house, though our first to ski in Panorama. We came with two other families and the house was just the perfect one for all of us. There was space for everyone and the kitchen is so well equipped for preparing all the meals. The mountain was spectacular. The snow was a little icy at this time of the year, but we still had a good time skiing. The wonderful thing was that we were able to come home each day for lunch. It makes a vast difference to be able to do that. After a hot lunch and a quick nap, we were able to go back up the hills again in no time. We have always skied in Sunshine and Jasper, but will definitely come back again here to Panorama.

                            This is our second stay in this beautiful and very well furnished and maintained chalet. In addition to a great snow this year, the kids really enjoyed the after ski activities from the hot tub to board games and the golf on the wii!! Great relaxing time for the parents as well . Looking forward another stay

                            A group of 8 of us stayed in this home for the Grizzly Panorama race on Labour Day weekend, 2013. I have never been in a home quite like this - several rooms on 3 different levels. The home is perfectly appointed for several couples who are each looking for a bit of privacy and space, but enough room to get together in the large great room, at the big kitchen table or on the patio outside. The BBQ is huge and good quality and was utilized frequently by our group. The hot tub was a nice addition that we used rather frequently as well! Linens are very comfortable and plentiful! The use of the washer/dryer is a nice touch also. Lorie (one of the owners) is very friendly and prompt in her responses. Very nice to deal with. The price for this property is absolutely reasonable. A couple "negatives" that we encountered were very minor. Although we are responsible for bringing our own food (no problem there!), access to pantry items such as salt, sugar and other spices would have been helpful (the pantry was locked). The hot tub got quite funky at the end of our stay and we had no way to add more chemicals or clean it. We would have gladly maintained it if it meant we could use it for our last night there. I would not hesitate to stay here again. This property, and the surrounding areas, are absolutely beautiful! Thank you Lorie!!

                            Owner response: Thanks for your thoughtful feedback, Renee! We do have the hot tub refilled and serviced after each guest stay however, having chemicals available to guests might be something to consider. We do keep them in the garage but have not advertised that fact, assuming that not everyone would be familiar with the process of adding chemicals. As for the spices, sugar etc, I will follow up with your suggestion and will make the essentials available to our guests.

Walking trails all around, Panorama Resort facilities within walking distance, views of Grey Wolf Golf Course...all I can say is...very nicely done...and thank you! The bonus was the perfect weather. Highly recommended.

                            This is a great home in a beautiful location. The interior is spacious and has all the amenities that you will need. It has enough bedrooms for two families, with spacious rooms for the adults and rooms for children of different ages. Our children loved the bedroom with the bunks and the large TV. It is also well stocked with movies, games and books which everyone enjoyed. The patio and hot tub back onto the forest and wildlife is commonly seen from the patio. It’s been years since we have been to Panorama and it really still is such a great family place. We will be returning.

                            We had a great time in this mountain chalet for our annual family ski trip! Ideal location, close to ski hill yet far enough away from the village providing a peaceful, serene setting. Enjoyed awesome mountain views, snow saturated evergreens and abundance of natural light from the windows throughout! Nordic Center/Grey Wolf clubhouse was only 0.6km away where we were able to park, purchase our lift tickets and hop on the Sunbird chair to start the day! We also enjoyed returning to the unit for hot lunches on our ski days. Chalet was very spacious and would easily accommodate 2 families. Beds were super comfortable and blankets on the lower level were super cozy for movie nights. Double sided fireplace was enjoyed during breakfast. Games table with croquenot board, mini pool table and a great selection of other games will provide lots of fun for the gamers in the family. Hot tub hit the spot after our ski days. We also enjoyed having access to the Panorama Springs pools (at the resort base) a short 2km away which provided a place for the kids to swim and splash around.

                            This home offered more than enough space! We visited with 8 golfers, each with our own bed, there was no waiting for bathrooms and the living space was very spacious. I highly recommend this home.

                            Our family shared the house with two other families for four nights, with a total of six adults and six kids. We expected a nice place but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find a bright, spacious, comfortable, clean, extremely well-equipped home, which far exceeded our expectations. Everybody had a comfortable bed to sleep in, the kids enjoyed the games that were stocked in the entertainment center and especially the mini pool table, the adults enjoyed playing cards at the large dining room table and relaxing by the fireplace, and everybody enjoyed the hot tub. The Sunbird chair is a short 30 second drive from the house and the center of the village is only a few minutes away, close but far enough to avoid the usual party noise. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with... the numerous emails I sent to them prior to our stay were always promptly answered by Lorie. The skiing was also fantastic and worth coming back for. When we come back to Panorama, this will be the first place we look for accomodations. Thanks!!!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Paul and I both grew up on the prairies but love to escape to the mountains to ski whenever we can. Our four daughters are avid skiers and Panorama ski resort has been our favourite for many years. This home was originally built by Olympian Becky Scott (cross country skiing) because of its proximity to some of the most extensive and beautiful groomed ski trails anywhere to be found. Since buying this property in 2008, our family has come to enjoy Panorama year round with all it has to offer

                          Why the Owner Chose Panorama:
                          A home away from home. Well equipped, comfortable, and lovely. Quiet surroundings away from the bustle of the main village crowds but close enough to walk down for dinner or to the pools.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                          We have installed a stair lift, shower seat, toilet rails to enable elderly or handicapped/wheelchair visitors access the house with ease. Travel cot and high chair for small ones.
