March in Apex

We brought our own gear but you can rent snowboards or skiis or even skates there. The weather was around 0 to -10 so I didn't need more than a base layer and then my outter... More

Hi Yang P, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such an informative review. Apex is a bit of an anomaly in the sense that we can have lots of people on the mountain and virtually no lift lines! This is always a plus for those who like the feeling of having the mountain to themselves. The... More

Liked the people, the staff and the service. They do a great job at this resort! Hotel and condos right at the hill are super convenient, bistro, restaurant, Saloon and store all within one building. Awesome place to ski!

Great little resort with plenty of ski challenges, just needed more snow than we got! The runs were icy despite good management, just not very snowy this season.

This beautiful ski mountain is an easy 45 minute drive from Penticton and provides a great experience. The road in pops thru a pass that provides a spectacular view of both the village below and the ski runs across. The village is small but well set up, with several restaurants, a large hotel and many chalets. The skiing is superb... More
