Apex Ski Holidays

It may be small but Apex is a hidden gem! Hit it on a powder day and you will be in for a real treat - there is some exceptional terrain. Not to be missed is the Gunbarrel Saloon - a Canadian legend.

Largely undiscovered by British skiers, Apex is a fantastic ski holiday destination for anyone who likes the unique atmosphere of a smaller ski resort.

Apex's slogan is 'Hot Terrain, Warm Village, Cool People', which sums it up pretty well. The ski area is small but varied and surprisingly challenging, and there is an excellent beginner's ski area with its own lift set back from the main ski runs. Apex's Gunbarrel Saloon is one of Canada's most famous ski-bars.

Apex is a great resort to stop at for a couple of days if you are on your way to or from Red Mountain, or to make a 10 day ski holiday after 7 nights in Big White or Silver Star.

I called Apex "home" for a number of seasons during which time I also travelled to many other hills within the BC interior. Apex is a hidden gem; don't let the small number of lifts fool you. This is a challenging ski hill...not to mention loads and loads of fun. The grooming is excellent, exceptional actually, and the atmosphere is friendly.

At first sight skiing appears limited but there are plenty of steep and long black diamond couloirs through the trees to test your ability and fitness.
