The remaining 48 percent of the trails are designed for moderate and intermediate skiers. There are four lifts, including a high-speed detachable quad, a magic carpet for beginners, a T-bar, and a triple chairlift. In all, there is over 1,100-skiable acres with a base elevation of over 5,000 feet. The resort has won numerous accolades, including “Canada’s Best Small Destination” and since it’s a little off the beaten path visitors can expect short wait times and plenty of wide-open spaces.

Parks and Pipes 

Orange Park is designed for competitions with big jumps on one side and big rails on the other. Snowmaking guns cover the park so that it can open early each season and stay open later. Crooked Park is a little less intense and suitable for beginners or those looking to build confidence. Boxes, rails and jibs are available for beginners to advanced riders. There's a 20-foot box, an S-Rail, C-boxes, an R3, and many more features for riders to enjoy.

Out of Bounds 

Apex features a Snow Sport and Adventure Centre that includes the ski and snowboarding school as well as a kids club called Rippin Rascals. There are over 35 miles of trails for cross-country skiing. On the weekends the Tim Horten Tube Park is open and a perfect activity for everyone. there is also an NHL sized hockey rink and an outdoor Zomboni-maintained skate track.

Hangout & Hookup

Rather than the huge, overwhelming resort atmosphere typical at many larger BC resorts, the crowds at Apex Mountain are small and the staff is friendly. However, there is a variety of restaurants and cafes perfect for apres ski or anytime during the day. Fine dining, mountain dining and quick slopeside snacks and beverages are available. Be sure to check out the Gunbarrel Saloon, which has been voted one of the top ski bars in Canada, and be sure to ask for their legendary Gunbarrel Coffee.
