As winter slowly goes away, Panorama Mountain Village is preparing a last weekend of fun on the slopes for guests and visitors.

The good times will kick off on April 9 with the mountain being open for skiing from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. There will be a barbecue on the Great Hall deck from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and a live band performing between 2-5:30 p.m. Families will be able to take part in a Family Fun Race from 1-3 p.m., which will lead into one last Rail Jam event starting up at 5:30 p.m. In the evening there will also be a Dark Riders Dual Slalom race held on the hills. The fun does not end on Saturday, though.

Sunday will see a number of great events to keep all members of any family busy at the resort.

Again there will be live music on the deck of the Great Hall and skiing all day. However, Sunday is also the time for one of the seasons most popular events, with the return of the Rockstar Slush Cup.

The event tests a variety of skills all at one time, giving skiers and snowboarders the chance to skim across water at the base of the mountain while huge crowds cheer on competitors.
