Apex Mountain Ski Resort

A Hidden Gem

South Okanagan's ski resort
Apex Mountain Resort is only 34 km (about 40 minutes) west of Penticton, BC, making it the easiest resort for most people in the South Okanagan to get to. This is great for people coming from out of town as there is almost never a lift line over 5 minutes on weekends and its common to ski right onto the chair mid-week.  

And while this resort isn’t as popular as some of the bigger names, it still has so many things skiers and boarders love. There are loads of runs for all ability levels ranging from mellow Green runs for family fun and developing confidence to legitimate Double Black Diamond lines providing cliffs, drops and chutes. 

The village amenities include a tube park, skating rink, forest skating loop, restaurant/bar, games arcade,  candy store, cafe and wine bar. 

Apex has been operating for nearly 60 years and is continuing to make improvements and open new terrain. Apex is truly a mountain filled with local secrets that will keep you coming back for more once you start to discover them.
  • 'The Chute' - Black Diamond - Steep, Open, Fast
  • 'The Pit' - Black Diamond - Natural terrain right under the chair - GO BIG, everyone is watching<
  • 'Juniper' - Blue - Fun and open for advanced skiers and manageable for novice. Provides access to all Terrain parks
  • 'Grand Fathers Trail' - Green - The longest and greenest trail at the resort! Amazing views and family fun
