I booked this 3 bedroom townhouse through the Registry Collection/RCI for a golfing trip. There were five mature adults and we had a wonderful time. The kitchen was very well equipped and all the appliances worked. The beds were super comfortable. The townhouse was very clean and there was generous storage space. It was great to have underground parking directly underneath. I enjoyed the upper lodge pools but little else was open during this shoulder season. We did have a few concerns. First, this is an old building (1970s or 80s) and there are no smoke detectors. Second, the “underground “ garage leaked badly during a day of heavy rain. How structurally sound is the building? Third, the steep stairs (two flights within the townhouse) are challenging to negotiate with luggage. They are a fall risk for the able and completely inaccessible for anyone with significant mobility problems. Fourth, the renovated interior, while well designed, demonstrated some sloppy execution. One kitchen cupboard could not be fully opened and the tiled floors in the kitchen and one of the bathrooms were not completely grouted. We requested additional dishcloths and other supplies five days into our trip, but they never arrived. I guess gaps in service are now the norm post Covid. Overall, a very enjoyable trip with accommodation that was more than adequate but not luxurious. I would definitely return to Panorama but would look for more modern accommodation next time.

Wonderful view of the mountain from our living room. Very well equipped unit with comfortable furnishing and beds. A bit of a trek to get into Invermere and surrounding areas. Would highly recommend this resort..

This is our 4th time in Panorama Mt. Resort and it never gets old. Still a fun place to have a quiet and relaxing vacation. Our friends who came with us and are first timers at the resort and they only have great thigs tp say about the resort. Service is excellent, the resort is a bit dated but generally still in great shape, clean, and offers a lot of activities like white water rafting, nature hike, golf, biking, and of course swimming and many more,

We stayed in a suite the bed was a pulled out from the wall the room was well-stocked had a kitchen bathroom was great it was quiet good views - there are no restaurants in the immediate area so everything has to be walked two and guess what it’s all uphill - there is amazing hot tubs as well scenery biking and all other tremendous things that the kids will love. It is an extremely expensive place to stay so bring your credit card yes there is a lot of walking

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. There are lovely views of the mountains here! From your description of the unit, you stayed in one of our studio units with a murphy bed. That unit also has a queen sofa bed pull out as well. We are located in the lower village, and the amenities you describe are in the upper village. Guests can walk, or take the gondola that runs between the upper and lower village. We thank you for the review, and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Parking was an issue. Not able to park near unit one night and vehicles parked in entranceways. Very limited food options Monday and Tuesday, with limited options the rest of the week during the summer. For restaurant variety and options need to travel 20 minutes on slow winding road (not long and winding😜).

Hi Douglas, Thank you very much for reviewing our property, and thank you for calling me personally to discuss the parking concerns. We wish that all of the resort restaurants were open but regretfully staffing shortages are a real problem in the Columbia Valley this summer. The Cliffhanger Restaurant at Greywolf Golf Course is open daily and Alto Restaurant is open 8am- 9pm daily for grab and go items and open Wednesday through Sunday for dinner. I hope you enjoyed some of the amazing restaurants in the town of Invermere as well. We hope to welcome you back again in the future.

The units are always clean and well equipped. The timeshare office is efficient, responsive and accommodating. There was maintenance work going on during our stay but the impact on us was minimal. We always enjoy our stay here.

We were really looking forward to a getaway and Panorama is beautiful, even off season; however these units are dated. They are clean but they are dated. The paint is peeling on the patio, the tiles on the fireplace are crooked and stained. The furniture (coffee table) is very scratched up and the carpet is functional and newish but I don't know why at a mountain resort you wouldn't have hardwood floors. The hot tubs closest to us were closed. The t.v. and internet worked occasionally. The hot water tank was turned off when we got there and we discovered it had a leak when we turned it on. I say all this because it makes me so sad to know that with just a little bit of work these could be amazing units. They are in a beautiful location. Their competition (AirBnB) offers much nicer units for the same price. I just don't understand RCI timeshares. They have guaranteed income, 24/7 from their owners yet they are often the worst maintained places you will stay. The RCI Points system nickel and dimes you with housekeeping fees, resort fees, etc. which often make it cheaper to stay elsewhere. I just don't understand. Andrea, who I believe is in charge of the Panorama timeshare, was kind and helpful. It's too bad they don't give her some units she can really be proud of. Went to visit nearby Fairmont RCI resort and the employee there spoke of her constant complaints from RCI members about how the RCI system works. When will RCI stand out above the crowd and stop basing their business model goals on signing up as many new members as they can and rather base it on having the best customer service and the fairest values in the travel industry.

Thank you for providing your feedback regarding your stay with us. I apologize for the delay in responding. Panorama is beautiful, and these units are dated however we pride ourselves on unit cleanliness and doing what we can in terms of refurbishment on an annual basis. The hot tubs in the Horsethief Condo's will remain closed until Stage Four of the Government of BC's restart plan. The hot water tank issue was my fault and I apologize that this impacted your stay. I am proud of my property. I am sorry that you are disppointed with your RCI experience. I hope that you will return to Panorama in the future and that it is enjoyable. Best Regards, Andrea Hopkins

Horsethief Lodge is a great place to stay when skiing at Panorama Mountain Resort. These are older condominiums but well maintained and kept in excellent condition. The kitchen had everything we needed, the wifi was easy to use, lots of television channels. We could ski from the slopes right to the door of our unit. What more could you ask of accommodation at a ski resort. We have stayed at Horsethief several times but because of COVID some things were a bit different this year. Health orders prevented some services from being offered and some amenities from being open. This is not the resorts fault, they were just following the provincial health orders. Everything which was allowed to be open was well maintained and clean. We had a great week at this resort.
