The World's Best On Snow At Panorama (18-Nov-08)

Panorama Mountain Village, B.C. – Tuesday, November 18th, 2008 – The Panorama Alpine Canada Alpin National Race Training Centre opened this morning

The Panorama Alpine Canada Alpin National Race Training Centre opened this morning for pre-season race training on Showoff.    

Up to 180 athletes are training this week, including international teams from the United States, Germany, Slovenia, Great Britain, and Japan.  In addition, Panorama is also hosting the Canadian Alpine Ski Team - Ladies, the Canadian Alpine Development Team - Ladies, the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team, the Canadian Para-Alpine Development Team, and the B.C. Ski Team. 

The conditions and terrain at Panorama Mountain Village are perfect for pre-season race training;

·        The weather from mid-October is ideal for high-volume snowmaking. 

·        Machine-made snow is preferred for race training, as it produces conditions that match those the athletes will ski during the World Cup.

·        Panorama has several homologated runs, which meet F.I.S. (International Federation of Skiing) standards for Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super Giant Slalom disciplines.

·        The Mile One Quad provides a quick turn around for athletes.

Panorama Mountain Village also provides coaches and athletes with a hassle-free training program;

·        With one phone call, coaches can arrange lodging, lifts, meals, wax rooms, transportation, hill assignments, and grooming needs.

·        All teams stay in slopeside lodging, only steps from the Mile One Quad.

·        Tuning and waxing facilities are in the same building as their accommodation.

·        A meal plan fit for athletes is available in the Great Hall.

With colder weather in the forecast, Panorama snowmaking continues; thereby opening new terrain to welcome more teams every day.  At its peak, the mountain will host 300 athletes a day.
