Overview: hotel description: The Approach description

Previously called the Pine Inn, this hotel’s been completely overhauled to give it a sleek, Scandi-inspired look and feel. And it’s still all about convenience too – The Approach is right in the village centre, at the bottom of the Showoff green run and the Mile 1 Express chairlift so everything's within easy reach.

Stay on either a room-only basis so when and where you eat is up to you, or pay a little extra for bed & breakfast at the Alto next door. There are plenty of à la carte options right here in the hotel. Stop at the Fireside Café & Lounge to get a coffee and pastry for breakfast before heading up the hill, then come back later to sip a glass of wine and snack on charcuterie, or grab a beer and catch the latest hockey game on TV in T-Bar & Grill. And for dinner, how about a crisp, wood-fired pizza at Alto Kitchen & Bar?

More of a spa fan? Make time for a dip in the heated outdoor pool and hot tubs, or wander a couple of minutes to Panorama’s slopeside hot pools.

British Columbia’s Panorama Mountain Village is one of the less-known places to ski in the Rockies, but that’s by no means a bad thing. The inspiration behind the name is obvious– it has stunning panoramic views over a thousand peaks of the Rockies and nearby Mount Nelson. The atmosphere here is laid-back and unpretentious, making it ideal for anyone who likes a bit of peace and quiet. The village is genuinely village-sized and the streets are pedestrianised (anyone with wheels can use the underground parki...
With 4,000 feet of vertical (the fifth highest on the North American continent) and 120 trails over an impressive 3,000 acres, the skiing is diverse, exciting and suited to all abilities. The tourist office describes this as a place to “ski your brains out” and as added bonus, there’s a good chance you’ll have it to all to yourself... With 24 green and blue runs that allow steady progression, those just starting out are by no means forgotten here. The friendly Panorama Ski School caters for absolute beginn...
The après here is truly chilled out and genial – the kind of place where you can kick back, share a tall tale over a pint (or three) and enjoy the evening. There are some terrific bars for those who like to party as hard as they ski. The Crazy Horse Saloon has live music throughout the season, and the Jackpine pub is always popular with its daily happy hour. If you’re still standing and want to dance the night away, the Glacier nightclub is open until the early hours. The village has some great places t...
