Panorama is a great place for families with beginner skiers among them, as there are plenty of nursery slopes and areas as well as tons of easy, wide-open and doable runs making for a great learning experience for ski newbies. The base area is where beginners find numerous options to improve their skills on easy, wide slopes. Two magic carpets, Little Ripper and Red Carpet, take you up and down the mountain.
The qualified ski instructors of the local Panorama Ski & Ride School will be happy to help you improving your skills and finding ways down the mountain suited for your level. The school offers private and group lessons for skiers and riders of all ages and levels. PanoKids is for tots to teens and for both beginner and advanced who are into having a good time in a group lesson format. Only 10 m from the beginner area lies the Ski Tip Lodge, where you can take a short break enjoying a hot chocolate, snacks and others.
Discovery Quad, Silver Platter, Mile 1 Express, Toby Chair and Sunbird Chair allow you to explore all the green and blue runs at Panorama Mountain. Champagne Express takes you to another area with tons of designated blue runs. However, the rest of the ski resort is dedicated to advanced skiers, as it consists almost exclusively of Black Bowls, black and double diamond runs.
Since Panorama is not exactly the place of hustle and bustle, the ski resort is great for beginners, who are still rather insecure on skis. Another plus is that all descents lead to the base station, so there is absolutely no chance to get lost here. Beginners who'd only like to ski the beginners' area with its magic carpets, benefit from the Discovery Zone lift ticket, which saves you almost half the regular lift ticket price.
