Things to Do
Tubing at Apex Mountain Resort (Don Weixl photo)
Apex Mountain Resort is a family destination that also hosts the world's top freestyle athletes.
Before the main season, the resort's snowmaking capabilities and excellent facilities make this a training destination for national aerial and mogul teams. Once the resort officially opens, downhill skiing and snowboarding are the prime focus, but winter activities like tubing, ice skating, pick-up hockey, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing draw lots of attention too.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Downhillers and snowboarders tackle 450ha/1,112ac of terrain geared to challenge skills from beginner to powder hound. Ski Canada Magazine has recognized Apex with Best Steeps and Best Grooming awards. Boarders step it up a notch on the rails, spines, tables and sliders in three terrain parks. Both riders and gliders hone those skills with group lessons or private coaching at the Snow School.
