This was not my first zip line adventure but the lengths of the lines (3 lines) and the awesome beautiful views makes this and excellent adventure and value. It was only 65 dollars which included a ride in the gondolas. I think this is a great alternative to a day of skiing. The training was great and the guides friendly... More

Recent snowfall made for excellent powder on the mountain. Lift lines were minimal and ticket cost was $67. A 12 mi. drive up/down windy road to access, but road cond. were good/clear. Visibility great on a sunny day.

I've always hated the roads to Ski Apache, and the sheer fact that in 20 years there's been zero visible improvements means they don't care about having accessible for customers. I drove up during a blizzard one day and had no problem with 4X4 offroad. I saw a lot of STUCK small cars some even with snow chains. Then I... More

Having lived in WA State and having access to some great ski resorts, we were very disappointed with this place. We're a snowboarding family and wanted to learn to ski the right way, especially since we had several other family members attending for their first time. The entire resort is outdated. We waited in line for over an hour to... More

Even though it was nearly 50 degrees on the mountain, the made snow (mixed with remnants of last week's snow) was great! There aren't high speed lifts, but the lines aren't very long so you go up the mountain quickly. Great place for beginners/intermediates to learn. My husband who is an advanced skier also enjoyed the runs at the top... More

The runs were not too bad except for some that should have been closed due to exposed rocks and ground. There are good blue runs up the gondala so doing lift one over and over is a good choice if you like those or the blacks up there. Meadows was the easiest of the blues. Ambush did exactly that. Easy... More

We had a good time visiting Ski Apache between xmas and New Year 2014. Since we are beginner skiers so we cannot comment on the mid and advance trails, we only use the bunny slope but had a great time. There were probably more than 10 inches of snow on the 26th of December 2014. The kids really enjoyed it.... More
