Panorama Mountain Bike Park Overview
Panorama Bike Park is a top Five winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Western Canada Region.
Panorama's Bike Park offers a number of trails to challenge riders of all levels. Renowned for singletrack trails with natural features for all abilities, Panorama's variety includes wide cruisers and expert terrain with man-made stunts.
Recent host to the Canadian Downhill Championships, Panorama might be mellow but its trails will give you a run for your money. With one highspeed gondola for access, and non-existent crowds, riders can lap Panorama's freeride and downhill mountain bike trails without lines or chaos.
The recently developed Bike Skills Park is a great place for kids and beginners to practice and play. This park is built for fun, with small jumps and rolls as well as some wooden features and best of all – no lift access is required. The laid back resort community offers family activities, bike and bed packages, cross-country trails as well as freeride and downhill features.
Getting to Panorama Resort
Panorama is situated in BC’s Purcell Mountains, with alpine views to the Rocky Mountains. The nearest major city is Calgary, AB, just a 3.5 hour drive away. Access from Calgary is west, via Highway 1 through the Banff and Kootenay National Parks, followed by a turn south on Highway 93 through to Radium and onwards to Invermere, BC. From Invermere, a gentle 20 minute drive rises into the Purcell Mountains and winds towards Panorama Mountain Resort.

Last Years Highlights
After the success of last year's BC Canada Cup we are once again teaming up with SE Racing this July and welcoming the Dunbar Summer Series. If you missed all the action from last year rave reviews and praise flooded in about the race course, which headed down Insanity. Four new features and a bunch of different line options were opened up with some exciting raw sections making for an action packed race. World ranked Specialized rider, Troy Brosnan, took out the Elite Men top spot.
What's New For This Season
The last two summers have seen a flurry of improvements to the park as the crew takes things to the next level. Trails were refurbished and re-routed. A popular and progressive intermediate jump line was added to Mercy Me & the jump line on Hell's Bells completely overhauled, making the jump shapes more modern. The Hell's Bells decks now average approximately 30 feet in length. The features on Crazy Train also received some tender loving care, opening up multiple line choices.
The Panorama Bike Park has a number of trails to challenge riders of all levels. With high-speed chairlift access, choose from easier trails for those new to the sport, varied intermediate trails to boost confidence on steeps, features, and technical terrain, or expert downhill trails with man-made features.
Panorama trails are built into the natural terrain, and are known for rocky, rooty, steep singletrack lines, but also has smooth, flowy machine built trails. The hill has 17 marked trails (+ 1 secret trail - ask in resort for inside info, they say), as well as one 4X course, one drop park, and two dirt jump trails. The breakdown is 14% Easy, 33% Intermediate, 20% Advanced, 33% Expert. A centrally located skills park in the village does not require lift access and is aimed for kids and beginners to get the feel of DH and freeride equipment and trail features.
Panorama, BC — The 2012 winning design of the Rockstar "Dream it Drop it Contest" will be ready for riders this Saturday, July 21.

Panorama, BC — What could be radder than a summer riding session at Panorama Bike Park with 3 buddies for a weekend? How about riding the new bike park feature that came from your own twisted imagination!
Panorama, BC – Panorama Mountain Village has unveiled a new stunt feature on its mountain biking tracks. The new feature, The Mouse Trap, consists of a steep lead-up with a jump, which lands riders on a wooden track. At the end of the short track, riders can either launch up onto the adjacent wall and ride it across to the finishing mound, or make a full jump off the launch ramp to the mound if they so choose.
Panorama, BC – Panorama Mountain Village hosted the final race of the 2011 Canada Cup downhill series, also a BC Cup mountain bike race, under beautiful blue skies and in front of cheering supporters. One hundred and ninety two entries ranged from first time "Citizen" category racers to last weekend's Canadian Downhill Mountain Bike Champion Andrew Mitchell, who competed in the "Elite" category.
