Great ski hill

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

Most of the mountain is on a rim that funnels back to the base area. There are some good groomers, and lots of steep chutes with great tree skiing on the margins. This is worth the stop if your in the area, and worth going out of your way to get to if the season is above average for snow.

we drive up to Apex for the scenic drive and the resort at the ski center is in a great location for viewing, dining, and access to the ski lifts. However, everything was closed when we drove up there in October.
