Apex Mountain Resort, located in south central British Columbia, remains one of the hidden gems of Canadian skiing. Located a short 30 minute drive from Penticton, BC, Apex is a full service destination resort with quality snow, great weather, incredible terrain, and friendly people. Apex being located in the heart of the Okanagan Valley, features the perfect mix between large ... amounts of precipitation and low humidity that makes for the lightest champagne powder snow imaginable. Smiles stretch from ear to ear, as locals and visitors alike hoot and holler amongst the glades & open terrain, leaving clouds of powder snow to lightly settle behind them. With an average temperatures around 25°F (-4°C), Apex receives about 240 inches (600cm) of dry "Okanagan" powder each season. Read more

Is there going to be any more lift tickets available ?

Liftopia tickets redeem in guest services next door to lift ticket lines. Don't wait in ticket lines. I've had different experiences at different resorts, but at Apex, skip the ticket line, and visit the friendly ladies at guest services counter. Awesome resort - rides bigger than it looks. Killer boardercross! Killer terrain park! Killer grooming! No lift lines. Plenty of Pow. Plenty of ridiculously steep pitches, rolling jumps, and tree glades. I'm definitely going back to this place!

A bit more of a drive from Vancouver but worth the extra couple of hours if you are going to stay for a few days. Way, way better snow, a much more friendly environment plus the price is right.

I was going to mention a big thanks to Liftopia for saving me $ on a 1-day lift ticket.

Smaller, but excellent mountain to discover! The snow conditions were perfect with lots of fresh & light powder. Take the Quickdraw chair and board the double blacks & blacks to your skiers right. Every run ends up down at the green cat track "Grandfather's Trail", which goes back to every lift. This mountain offers many steep black runs on top and mostly blues on the bottom. Stay at the Double Diamond Hostel on the resort or at the HI-Hostel in near Penticton. Would go back there any day!

Great mountain to ski with good selection of terrain. Not busy during the week=no lineups. Great for the whole family including the experts.

Fantastic experience. Excellent conditions with fresh snow, no line-ups, helpful friendly staff. Two of us skiing saved about $50 getting lift tickets through Liftopia.

Wild side if there's fresh snow! The whole mountain is awesome - excellent terrain. Hanks hollow and the Tongue are great steeps. Liftopia was seamless - will definitely use again.

saving $$ for a great week-end of well groomed runs on first day and a few extra inches of fresh snow & sunshine for second day. virtually no lift line-ups giving our group of five to get organized for the fast quad chair. Definitely would have explored more of the backside if there was fresh powder. Friendly liftees, brush the snow off your chair and your skis. We declined the free ski tour guide, but he caught up to us and made sure we weren't missing any of the best runs.

When skiing the "wild side" of the mountain, get back to the quad lift by taking a trail to the left, early in the flat section.

Awesome deal for midweek skiing. We had the whole mountain to ourselves. Saved $60 for four lift tickets. Will definitely use liftopia again.

One of the best kept secrets in skiing. A great mountain with terrain for all levels. Had a great day with the kids and even got to ski a few runs on my own.

Thanks,had a great time on the hill.Just wish they had a group rate on lift tickets for three or more skiers that are coming to the hill for a day of skiing.

What a great Mtn! Thanks for saving my family some coin getting on it. We really look forward to getting back up there soon (like as soon as we hear about a powder dump). Apex would be an amazing powder hill, but was good even after a couple weeks with almost no new snow.

-add more features to your crooked park- even though there were about 6 or so features, more beginner rails and jibs could be added- mount seymour has about ten rails squeezed into one small area -great steeps! -is there room for expansion on the other side of apex? -that's it!
