Excellent snow conditions, awesome slopes and two terrain parks bring skiers and snowboarders to Apex Mountain Resort just 35 minutes outside Penticton.
Numerous national aerial and mogul teams choose Apex for training and the resort regularly hosts World Cup and NorAm events. Apex has been recognized by Ski Canada Magazine with a variety of awards including Best Steeps, Best Grooming and Best Small Destination Resort.
With the combination of 600cm/20ft average annual snowfall and very low humidity, Apex is known for its light champagne powder. Expect comfortable skiing from early December to April with temperatures averaging around -4°C/25°F.
