Apex Mountain Resort

Apex Mountain Resort is one of British Columbia’s hidden treasures, thanks to terrific snow and varied terrain. This South Okanagan mountain, 30 minutes from Penticton, boasts an impressive six metres (19 feet) of champagne powder a year.

Take a spin around the one-kilometre (0.6-mile) ice-skating loop or glide along one of 56 cross-country skiing trails. There’s plenty to do in and around this quaint ski-in/ski-out village.

  • Apr 8, 2018: “I came here for a family trip and to learn how to ski. The mountain offers many varieties of runs that accommodate any level of skier. I spent most of my time on the bunny hill and a bit of the stocks chair lift section. Maintained very well and only had a issue on our last day but that was due to weather. So far, very impressed.” 0
  • Mar 29, 2018: “All the kids from the 18 year old all the way down to the 6 year old had a fantastic time yesterday learning to snowboard! The instructor was patient and enthusiastic and had them all successfully navigating the magic carpet run very quickly. After the two hour morning lesson we ate our bag lunch and the kids were begging to go back to the slopes. Huge smiles from all. Prices were great, village was small but had everything one needed, and the drive up was clear and easy.” 1
  • Mar 28, 2018: “We spent three days skiing Apex and never had to queue for a lift. The runs (trails) were empty. Although it's not as big as the French resorts that we usually ski, there were plenty of runs for our three day stay but if you don't want to ski black runs, more than three days may get a little tedious. There is a mix of runs to suit any intermediate or expert skier including a large number of black runs. Some of these black runs are groomed and some not. Some are very challenging being steep and narrow whilst others were wider and not as steep - check out the Chute if it has been groomed and you want to try one of the less challenging blacks. There are a number of green and blue runs as well with green (cart track) runs to take you from the top of the mountain back to the village if you want an easy run down. The trails are below the tree line so you have protection from any wind. There is also a learner slope with a magic carpet lift to take beginners back up the hill. Night skiing is available on Fridays and Saturdays. The Bistro is a reasonably priced self service outlet with good quality food. The Gun Barrel Saloon was expensive - a beer was more expensive than in London, UK and that really is saying something. A reasonable resort for intermediate and expert skiers for a few days skiing. My wife recommends the ladies day on a Wednesday which is an inclusive deal of lift pass, lesson and lunch.” 2
