About the property

Uniquely private Horsethief condo backing on green space.

This well-appointed condo in Panorama’s Horsethief complex has a relaxed, cottage feel that will instantly put you in a vacation mood.

This unit is bright, clean and uniquely private with no rear neighbours. Enjoy your morning coffee on the quiet south-facing deck while the kids play on the extended green space - just watch out for the deer that frequent the area!

After preparing dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy some family time at the end of the day in the cozy nook. There is a selection of board games if you're in a competitive mood, or free wifi and Netflix if you'd prefer to chill out.

The condo boasts a master bedroom featuring a king bed with a scenic view up the ski hill. Kids will love the bunk room with lots of room for play, or just hanging out on the bean bag chairs. A pullout sofa is also available on the main floor.

Keep your toes toasty warm with the heated tile floors in both full bathrooms.

In the winter, beat the crowds at the Main Lodge by skiing-in and -out to the Toby Chair. Enjoy an apres-ski hot tub or sauna only steps from the front door.

In the summer it's a quick walk to the Adventure Centre, Toby Pool or the waterslides and hot springs-fed pool in the upper village. The village grocery and liquor store is also steps away.

Only 20 minutes from the amenities of Invermere, including one of the valley’s warmest lakes, Lake Windermere. Beach toys are provided.

Just a beautiful three-hour drive from Calgary, this is the relaxing mountain escape you’ve been looking for!

About Josh & Erin Clark

We moved to Cochrane, Alberta from Calgary more than 10 years ago. We had plans to move back to the big city one day, but love Cochrane's small town charm and the wide range of activities for our family.

Josh & Erin Clark purchased this condo in 2014

Why Josh & Erin Clark chose Panorama

We had heard about the beauty and recreational opportunities of Panorama, but it wasn't until we visited that we fell in love with the area. Just like Cochrane, it has a lot of charm and also a wide range of year round activities we can enjoy as a family.

What makes this condo unique

We immediately knew this property was for us. South-facing onto a green space lets our kids play year-round with all the other kids in the area. We were able to completely renovate the condo to reflect what we want in a vacation property - an updated rustic home away from home with lots of room for friends and family.

2nd Annual family ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we could not be more satisfied with our 5 night stay at the Orange Chickens condo with additional amenities like the semi private hot tub and sauna steps away, or use of the upper village hot pool (awesome for kids), hot tub, sauna!! My only regret (again) is that I didn’t book for longer!

Although this year again was centered around skiing, everyone enjoyed themselves as much off the hill as on. With the Upper village gondola or the convienence store and pizzeria a 2 minute walk away this condo is in a great location, not to mention the underground parking 20 steps from your door!

Having the three levels allowed our gear to dry out of site (and smell) and still offered room for everyone to have their space!

For the second year in a row I brought way more supplies than needed, we literally found everything we needed and then some, love the kitchen and newer appliances and that bbq which cooks a mean steak! We cooked every morning and night and never had an issue!

Kids loved the bunk beds which also worked for grampa! Closet and storage space was ample, and master bed was very comfortable. Separate heat thermostats in the bedrooms, in floor heat in the bathrooms (SO NICE), made feeling comfortable for everyone easy! Heat is electric, and main floor unit heater does make a bit of noise, although it never bothered us, in fact grampa just parked it right beside it and everyone was happy!

All that said nothing beats a glass of wine, in front of the wood burning fireplace after the kids are in bed!!!

Thanks for opening up your beautiful place to our family! We’ll be back next year!!!!

Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our ski trip and loved the condo and its location. We always stay in Horsethief condos so were very familiar with the location. They only real downside was that our two 17 year olds were too tall for the bunk beds. One more idea would be to have absorbent mats at the entrance and by the patio doors as my husband was in and out BBQing in the snow. Thanks for a lovely space to enjoy our ski vacation.

Panorama is a great family ski hill! These accommodations met our needs, as a family. It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with small appliances, and a dishwasher. We slept comfortably. It is convenient to the general store and underground parking was perfect.

It was a short walk to the lift or gondola to the base of the hill. It would be nice to have laundry facilities in the unit.

Very clean and lovely condo. Fully stocked with lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an excellent week in this very beautiful condo. It was clean and modern and was so well stocked. The children loved the bunk beds and all the sports equipment etc. The beds were very comfortable and the fans in the bedrooms certainly helped with the heat. The BBQ on the deck was great to have. The proximity to the lower pool and hot tub as well as the gondola was excellent. Parking was easy and safe. Overall it was everything we could have asked for and more. Many wonderful memories were made this week!
