Apex Mountain Resort
Apex Mountain Resort is a cozy village nestled at the base of a spectacular mountain. Regarded as some of the best skiing in North America, Apex boasts dry Okanagan powder, short lift lines and uncrowded slopes.

In under six minutes, the high-speed quad chairlift takes you to the top of the mountain. From there, you can access 1,112 acres of magnificent fall-line skiing and snowboarding.

While Apex has more than its share of challenges for expert skiers, with 67 runs, the area also offers beginner and intermediate skiers an inspirational experience on gentle rolling cruisers, groomed to perfection. Guests will love the Snow Sport and Adventure Centre, an innovative service, which incorporates the Ski and Snowboard School and the Rippin Rascals Kid's Club and is the central reservations point for all resort activities.

Apex is famous for quality and comfort. The resort is intimate and cozy. A village with everything you need all within a snowball's throw. With a variety of restaurants, there is ample choice for relaxing with your morning coffee to fine dining. Where else can you find virtually all accommodations featuring ski-in/ski-out access? Whether it's in a cabin, condo, hostel, hotel, or bed & breakfast, you will definitely enjoy your ideal get-away experience in a relaxed atmosphere, with as much or as little extra luxuries as you desire.

Apex Mountain Resort is located 240 miles (405 km) east of Vancouver (4-1/2 hours), and 21 miles (33 km) west of Penticton in the Okanagan Valley. From Vancouver, take the Trans-Canada Highway 1 to the Coquihalla Highway, then Highway 97 to Penticton. Follow the Green Mountain Road for approximately 1 hour to Apex Village.

There is a regularly scheduled air service from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Seattle: Air Canada, Pacific Coastal Airlines, West Jet and Horizon Air. Airport transfers and car rental packages provide several options for ground transportation between airports and the resort.
