It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.
