By order and direction of the BC Provincial Health Officer, province-wide restrictions and enhanced public health measures have been extended. No date for review has been set.
The order prohibiting social gatherings (indoor and outdoor) with people outside of your immediate household continues to be in place. What does this mean? Friends can't meet friends at the bar for a drink, even if the number of people at a table is less than six. People from several different households can't meet outside for a BBQ or tailgate in the parking lot. People from one household cannot visit with people from another household (this applies to people staying in resort accommodation too). Keep it tight to just your household and remember six is the max (even from your household) when you are dining out or socializing.
The RCMP are actively enforcing these provincial health orders at Panorama and throughout the Columbia Valley.
The advisory and guidance around non-essential travel also remains in place. Please, take the time to understand the latest health orders and guidance:
Be the reason we continue to have a season. The Panorama team has worked incredibly hard to make winter happen safely and we will continue to abide by all Public Health Orders. It is always a great day to be in the mountains, thank you for skiing close to home, for sticking to your immediate household and for helping us remain COVID safe.

Panorama is an independently owned and operated resort. Our management team lives in BC’s Columbia Valley and have their boots in snow every day. Our plan is guided by federal and provincial guidelines and best practices, agencies like Interior Health and associations like the CWSAA (Canada West Ski Areas Association). We also stay in close contact with resort operators around the world and sincerely thank our colleagues in Australia and New Zealand for sharing learnings from the Southern Hemisphere winter. They’ve already experienced what we are about to.
We are in this together. Our team will follow the guidelines set out in our operating plan and protocols and we expect you to do the same. You're at the resort to relax and have fun. If everyone follows the rules, then we'll avoid unpleasant discussions and ensure that our season is a long one.
When it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic, each day comes with new announcements, policies, guidelines, or unexpected situations. Know that we’ll do all we can to ensure you have a fantastic winter experience, while placing absolute priority on the health and safety of our community. Things can and probably will change; we’ll be sure to let you know if they do.
