Not too sure why people are so whiny..it's a sweet old school ski condo-lodge that's in the lower village with bbqs, hot tubs, general/liquor/pizza store, and the infamous jackpine pub..almost all the units are definately ski in ski out if you can maneuver at all on skis and know how to skate a little..no lift lines, except at Christmas and March break..some amazing tree skiing with steep chutes and small features (devils drop and starfire cliffs are the best spots on the mountain - also check out turnpike 1 for a cool view, if it's open) there's also some long steep groomers for takin it easy and layin some rails..not much fresh snow in large amounts but when it happens it's always champagne pow and lasts for days..It's bluebird and warm a lot with the massive mt Nelson booming at you from across the valley. The mountain views from the top will blow your mind and you can sit and have a beer.
If you come here to sit in your unit and look for stuff to complain about instead of always being outdoors and taking part in après in the village or checking out local culture then I'm afraid you've lost the ability to have fun and enjoy the simple life around you..for everyone else, enjoy..this place is a beaut!
Ps if you're planning a vacation do some research and figure out the best time of year to go for certain activities....the golf course is exceptional too, bent grass tee to green (not Augusta speeds but totally manageable) most scenic and creative holes I've ever played..play all day rate incl carts too..
I could go on and on about how awesome panorama is...just go check it out, have fun, and don't be a whiny B
