Apex

Located a mere 30 minutes drive from Penticton, British Columbia, and in the heart of the beautiful Okanagan Valley sits the hidden mountain resort of Apex.  Though it may be somewhat undiscovered, visitors should not discount this resort destination, instead it prides itself as a top contender for some of the best champagne powder available within the region.  Apex vacation homes create a balance of warmth and alpine splendour and ensure visitors needs are properly addressed.  Apex rentals give guests the means to settling down after a day filled with adventure and the comfortable amenities fulfill an idyllic mountain getaway.  Whether seeking rustic charm or something more luxurious, Apex accommodations aim to please even the most discerning traveler. 


Having won accolades for being Canada's Best Small Destination Resort and recognized for its spectacular composition, Apex mountain comes alive with a multitude of winter activities to impress all skill levels and even the youngest of visitors.  With an average snowfall of 240 inches of deep powder each year, guests take to the 67 trails encompassing some of the smoothest cruisers and steepest chutes.  The mild temperatures combined with the perfect amount of precipitation create the pristine conditions that Apex is known for.  Each hour four lifts deliver upwards of 6,500 skiers and riders to the 2,000 vertical feet and 1,112 acres of skiable terrain.  Beyond this, guests are treated to the uncrowded runs that are often associated with the more popular resorts.  Downhill skiing is not the only recreation that visitors can expect to find here.  Avid cross-country skiers are given the opportunity to test out the 56km of the groomed  world-class trails of Nickleplate Nordic Track.  Compelling vistas spread out in every direction and entice families to return to the sprawling area that comprises Apex Mountain Resort.  For a whimsical experience, the NHL-sized rink beckons guests to take a spin around the ice hand-in-hand or indulge in a game of hockey, a true Canadian tradition.  Snowmobiling, Tim Horton's Tube Park and snowshoeing each provide an exciting means to partaking in all that is offered in and around this winter wonderland. 


Within reach of Apex Mountain Resort, Penticton thrives through the warm summer months with its endless stretches of sandy beaches, delicious culinary delights and diverse wineries offering leading vintages.  Two stunning lakes provide the ultimate escape through fishing, boating and various other water sports.
