Panorama's Taynton Bowl

Panorama Mountain Village is excited about its newest and largest terrain expansion ever - Taynton Bowl. Formerly exclusive heli-skiing terrain operated by RK Heli-Ski, Taynton Bowl is now lift-accessed backcountry style skiing incorporated into Panorama’s official boundary.

To the delight of extreme ski enthusiasts, the expansion adds almost 1,000 acres, increasing the mountain’s patrolled acreage to 2,847 and making it one of Canada’s largest ski resorts. Through a combination of high elevation and northeast exposure, Taynton Bowl receives excellent snow coverage throughout the season.

Accessed off the Summit Quad, Taynton Bowl offers skiers and riders over 1,000 acres of wide open and naturally gladed backcountry-style terrain. The bowl’s main chutes travel over a landscape of sparsely vegetated ridges and valleys and drop over 1,700 vertical to a common collection point. The bowl empties into the Taynton Trail ski out, which takes skiers back to the village. The entire Taynton Bowl experience covers a total vertical of 4,000 feet, one of the highest vertical drops in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The majority of Taynton’s terrain has been rated double black diamond, for expert skiers and riders.

"I compare Taynton Bowl with China Bowl at Vail and the Hogbacks at Jackson Hole,” says Gord Ahrens, Panorama’s General Manager. “Taynton marks the mountain’s move toward more extreme skiing. While we still cater to families, we now have exciting terrain for all levels of skiers and riders.”

Besides Taynton Bowl, Panorama offers skiers and riders a variety of beginner, intermediate and advanced options. Beginners will enjoy the gentle, groomed cruisers off Mile One quad chair, while intermediate skiers and riders can practice turns down Millennium and other Blue runs off the Horizon and Sunbird chairs. Choosing between Taynton Bowl, Extreme Dream Zone and Sun Bowl, advanced and expert skiers will be kept busy for days.
