Apex Mountain Resort
This Resort is situated on the west side of Okanagan Lake giving it the perfect blend of sunny skies while also receiving lots of the famous Okanagan champagne powder.
Our geographic location of our mountains contributes to more sunny days with high visibility. Come and discover what the locals already know!
Ideal weather conditions conspire to create incredible, light champagne powder. Apex receives the perfect mix of large amounts of precipitation, combined with low humidity and dry champagne powder snow. And because Apex Mountain Resort is the only mountain in the Okanagan that faces northeast, those beautiful powder snow crystals are less affected by the sun and the famous light, dry powder snow can survive for days after a snowfall.
With an average of 600 cm of this special snow falling each season, Apex provides the moderate winter conditions and dry powder snow craved by skiers and snowboarders alike.

Apex also has the most comprehensive snow-making fleet in the region. Apex currently operates 12 snow guns that provide top-to-bottom snow-making capability for over 2,000 ft of vertical. Because of this resource, the resort is able to operate its early season training camps each fall. Apex hosts training for elite athletes from several countries as they prepare for the World Cup circuit and other top racing disciplines.
