Pros: Low crowds. Big vertical. Lots of variety. Good steeps and tree skiing. Cheap!
Cons: Some long run-outs, especially coming out of Taynton Bowl. Exposed rocks in high traffic areas.
I skied Panorama on February 10, 2017. About 4 feet of fresh snow had fallen over a 5 day span. Conditions were excellent throughout. Taynton Bowl was epic.
It does not usually snow this much up there, but this year, it did! In such conditions, Panorama is as good as anything in North America, except may be WB, Jackson and Big Sky.
I will go back!
