Great place to ski with the family. Usually can get discount lift tickets in the Lower Mainland from Costco. Awesome on hill kids ski school and daycare. Give Mom and Dad a chance to sneak away for a few hours tand do some turns.

It's a beautiful ski resort. During snow season, there are stores and restaurants open and it rocks. Never too busy. Really friendly people. In the off-season, there isn't much. They have a few weekends of activities (mountain biking events, or the like) and you can still wander around on your own, but outside of these events weekends, don't expect there... More

We did not know what to expect and the entire visit was "over the top". Who knew about the paddle wheeler on the lake ? passengers and freight, too bad it's gone.

Nice ski hill with lots to offer all levels of skiers. A great family getaway. Stay at the hill or in Penticton (only ~35km from town).

Apex is my favourite mountain in BC! I skied abut 15 days there this year and each day is challenging yet rewarding. There is terrain types for all skiers, both front and back country. The staff are nice, the lines are few and far between, and the powder is exquisite! Definitely make this a stop on your ski trail!

Despite this being an epic snow year, Apex resort is special all on its own. It is not overly crowded and not many times waiting in a lift line. All the people from the rental shop to ski instructors to ticket booth to lifties to maintenance workers were very friendly and took pride in their jobs - this is a... More

Experienced rude and arrogant owner in my face when I "dared" to ask/question the settings on my son's skis. Apex is a great resort, nice food, good bar... but holy smokes what a jerk the Austrian/German/whatever owner was.

Apex is an excellent, challenging resort with some fun technical chutes, trees, and steep narrow mogul runs. If you come to Apex, you are coming to a quiet, beautiful resort that has some excellent challenges. For the Europeans coming, the on hill amenities are nothing like home for you. Come for the steep skiing and virtually ZERO lift lines. If... More

Apex is a mountain that is never busy. It is a great mountain for adding up a ton of vertical in one day. Everywhere off piste is great steep glades that never get touched. It is not a big stellar resort like some resort in British Columbia but it gets beautifully dry snow and the powder lasts for days.
