I would highly recommend this property.
Quick recap if you don’t want to read my long text:
House is exactly as pictured and has basically everything you need
Customer service was prompt and friendly
Panorama is lovely in general
Hottubbing, family meals (for 16+ people ) and snoeshowing right in the ‘backyard’ was a hit
A tiny bit of a walk to the chairlift. It’s not right on the mountain but if you have a big group it’s totally worth it.
The dishwasher isn’t the best, i’d suggest bringing your own scrubbers if you’ll be making a messy meal.
We had wifi issues (but they compensated us)
I was very nervous putting a 3 night long weekend stay on my credit card - and months early to boot. Having to put a $2500 damage deposit down a month before was a little bit inconvenient as I had to pay the interest on it. I’ve also heard horror stories about renters having to fight to get damage deposit back over furniture or damage that was already there before arrival. But as soon as we arrived the house was worth every minute of stress. The house is exactly as pictured (minus those dinky little tvs in the bedrooms, those were gone but who would use those anyways). The street is a cute picturesque winter wonderland, we all loved it! The snow was cleared from the streets but piled up everywhere so there was no street parking available to our guests (as expected). We had 3 large trucks parked on the driveway and the remaining guests had to park a 1 minute walk down the road (a very minor inconvenience, we hardly drove all weekend anyways). The house sleeps 16 guests comfortably. We stayed in the King master room and it has a lovely balcony overlooking the golf course with a spiral staircase to the hot tub (call dibs if you can!). There’s a ton of room and seating for guests, we cooked family meals (there is basically every appliance or utensil you can think of), went snowshoeing (rented from the clubhouse just a short walk away), and of course boarded on the mountain. We were all new to Panorama so we actually just ended up making the 3-4 minute drive to the chalet and parking there. Later did we realize there is a chairlift at the golf course clubhouse but it would be a tiny bit of a walk (it was gorgeous outside so none of us would have complained). I saw a few people board down to the same area but we didn’t explore to be honest, we didn’t spend enough time on the mountain to figure it out. Everyone enjoyed their stay, the house has everything. There is a number you can call if you have troubles and housekeeping can send someone. We called when the wifi wasn’t working and got ahold of someone quickly. It was a backend error though, nothing we could have done from the house so they were gracious enough to compensate us for that. Upon checkout you must take your garbage and bottles with you (which you should do anyways!). We received a full refund for our deposit (and even a compliment on how tidy we were!). All in all it was a perfect weekend.
