The Mountain and Valley Shuttle quickly and conveniently connects the Columbia Valley communities of Invermere-on-the-Lake, Panorama Mountain Village. This service allows you to visit an authentic B.C. mountain town and enjoy the shopping, dining and recreational opportunities it has to offer. Skate on the lake, watch a game of hard-hitting ice-hockey, or shop for unique local artworks. The Mountain and Valley Shuttle is supported by the District of Invermere and tourism operators in the Columbia Valley.
Restaurants & Nightlife
One of the most appealing attributes of our Mountain Village is that it is, in fact, a village. So you can just park underground and head to your room where you’re only steps away from everything – restaurants, hot pools, shops, and of course, the chairlift. Life in the village is extra fun for kids. The free Village Gondola is a daily, or in younger cases hourly, treat to fetch a fresh pizza at Mile High or grab those essentials at the General Store. Everything is right here, within reach.
There is just so much to explore and experience. Families; you will think this place was made especially for you. Movie night. Tube Park. Tobogganing. Craft making with skilled artisans. Games with Pano Pete. Soaking it up in the pool. And all winter long, special celebrations like Snowflake, Stampede, Mardi Gras and spring festivals. Don't forget to make the most of PanoPass; enjoy unlimited skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, tubing and tobogganing every day your lift ticket is valid. We really do see it as our job to make sure you and the kids, or your buddies, flop into bed happy and tired. Down the beautiful road along Toby Creek lies quaint Invermere on the Lake, where a free shuttle takes you to dining, galleries, shops and Canada's longest skating loop, the Lake Windermere Whiteway.
