Winter and summer mountain sports in the British Columbia Rockies, and no-where more so than on the aptly named Powder Highway.
Huge snowfall makes for deep power on famous mountain ranges such as the Rockies, Monashees, Purcell and Selkirks.
Invermere, along with Fernie, Nelson, Rossland, Golden, Revelstoke and Kimberly, is on the highway, and the signature mountain playground in the area is Panorama Mountain Resort, a 20-kilometre drive from the town.
There are 120 runs on the mountain and many shops and amenities at the resort and village. And the resort’s name sort of says it all: The panoramic views from this recreation area are stunning.
But enough about skiing — Panorama is a year-round resort. From May to October, golfers can enjoy the spectacular Greywolf Golf Course. In late-Jun, the Panorama Bike Park opens. The resort also has a pool and water-slide complex.
At the time this article was posted, Panorama Mountain Resort was closed due to COVID-19. Be sure to check this website about current conditions when you’re planning your future trip.
