panorama is nice, better every year. i haven't been there this year yet, but last year it was fun stuff.

across from the ski hill is mt. swansea, great shuttle/hike up trail with good flow and berms. the invermere beach is nice and usually houses a ton of girls, the fairmont hot springs are up the road a bit and usually a fun time.

there is rafting http://www.panoramarafting.com/ the river is really fun around there.

Thanks.
I'll be staying there for a week so I'll have plenty of time to check things out.
Ivermere has a beach? Onto a river or lake?
I won't have a car out there as a bunch of us are renting a motor coach and heading down from Winnipeg.
I heard there was a trail that runs down the mountain into Ivermere and something. This true?

the beach is on lake windermere, fun lake all sorts of boat and jetski rentals if you're into that.

there are trails everywhere, i can't remember the name of the local LBS but they are really nice they'll tell you whatever you need to know.

I believe I'm on that same trip, although I'm driving from Edmonton. I'm looking foreward to it very much and want to cram as much bike time as I can stand.

That might be the Paradise Mine trail...from what I understand you have to climb an old mine road (I don't know if its shuttle-able to the top or not) that is across the valley from Panorama. Apparently its something like 5000+ feet vertical and 20ish miles long.

Check out Rob's Bicycle Works in Invermere for info. 250-342-7231 Theyre on the left hand side of the road just after the first 3-way (4-way?) stop as you come into downtown Invermere....I think..:rolleyes:
