Located at the south end of the Okanagan Valley, some 30 minutes from Penticton, Apex Mountain Resort enjoys the best that this semi-arid geography has to offer. Light, fluffy powder is the standard at Apex, which features 1,112 skiable acres/450 hectares, with 67 groomed trails, 5 lifts and two hugely popular terrain parks. Apex's downhill terrain has a comfortable mix of novice, intermediate and advance runs, with night access on Fridays and Saturdays and a vertical drop of 2,000 feet/610 meters.
