The ski mountain has about 40 runs many of them steep and narrow, only a few blue and fewer green. The top is serviced by a good high speed quad with more than enough rider capacity to ski out the hill on a powder day is 3 or 4 hours. A second lift is an older double chair servicing intermediate... More

It's a little mountain compare to Whistler, but the runs are a lot more challenging and only a few are green or blue. There is also a huge drinking party constantly going on there with the locals...if you get to get in the gang

We were lucky enough to visit Apex on the back of some solid snowfall and it made the trip worthwhile. The mountain itself is quite small, with only 2 lifts and 2 t-bar servicing the terrain, however there are plenty of trees and runs to keep yourself entertained. That being said, it is quite easy to become bored with alot... More

Very Impressed with my last visit to Apex Mountain Resort, such good family vibe! No lift line ups, and I don't have to worry about losing my kids on an overcrowded run! Not only that but the mountain itself had such a good atmosphere! Ice skating on not only a hockey rink for my boys but we were able to... More

We took a long weekend at Apex and we were blown away by this mountain gem. The weather was sunny and brilliant. The village was festive and busy. But on the slopes it was like we owned the place! Short waits at the lifts, friendly staff, great food and a comfy place to stay (we could ski right to the... More

Visited Apex on a Friday & had planned on skiing there for 2 days. We thought the resort was rather soulless & some how seemed half closed & there didn't seemed to be many people around. The lady who so!d us our ticket struggled to talk to us even when we asked if there was somewhere we could change. There... More

We visited Apex for Christmas and it was fabulous! We are from the West Coast so snow is not something we experience often and when we do it is wet and Slushy. We were thrilled to have a white Christmas and see it snowing that night. The resort rooms were very comfortable and the staff were all friendly and helpful.... More

Came here for vacation during holiday season. There are two lifts. One small slow lift. The second is high speed quad, but worked only intermittently on day 1. Today, on day 2, it did not work. Was told by staff, the quad would probably not work tomorrow. If you are coming for a destination in the Okanagan, better to go... More
