Spring Riding is Here?

It’s January and mother nature has decided to change things up a bit so.. we might as well embrace the warm weather and sunshine!! I know I’m about to head out right now and get the meanest goggle tan EVER. The conditions aren’t powder, but when the sun hits, it’s that soft snow you’ve missed from spring ridin’ in June! I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling lucky! Get to ski, take in the glorious views from the top of the quad, and take a lunch break in the sun on the Gunbarrel deck or in front of the Edge Bistro!

We also have some awesome deals coming up this week, check out our Facebook page or listen in to Sun FM morning show for the “deal of the day”.

Welcome the New Year with Something New

Fitness Plan? Why not do something fun?

Everyone jumps in the gym January 1st.. or maybe the 2nd after spending the previous day drinking Gatorade. So, instead of cramming into your tightest “workout outfit” and staring at biceps-dude next to you while he counts to one thousand, why not try something different? Does a day in the sunshine and fresh air, not to mention the breath taking, mountainous views, sound like better time spent? We think so, too.. And that’s why we have Ladies’ Day starting this Wednesday, Jan. 7th. Every Wednesday all the single ladies… okay, they’re not all single.. but all the ladies’ get together for a ski day, fun group lesson, lunch, glass of wine, and good company every Wednesday.

So if you are thinking of registering or know of someone who may be interested, please call us at 1-250-292-8222 or drop in to Snow School to sign up today!

Lesson Schedule 9:45 am to 11:45 am – Lunch at 12:00 pm

Starts Jan 7th and runs every Wednesday until March 11th

Penticton High Dry Grad Bottle Drive

There will be two firework shows tonight – one at 6pm and one at midnight. You must have a ticket for the after party in the Gunbarrrel Saloon!

Need to get rid of your empties leftover from the holidays? Drop them off at the Infirmary by Jan. 9th, 2015 to support Penticton High School Dry Grad.

There will be a road block at the bottom of the mountain at the turn off at Green Mountain Rd., so if you do not have accommodation for Dec.31st you will not be allowed up the mountain. Please don’t drink and drive.

Happy New Year!

Current Conditions Update

We are off to a great start here at Apex Mountain Resort with the whole mountain open and conditions feeling more like mid-season than early-season. All lifts are running from 9-3:30pm and 4-9pm for night skiing throughout the Christmas Break, along with the Tube Park from 10-9pm, everyday except for New Year’s Eve.  Don’t forget we are offering our ‘Freaky Friday’ nights during the holidays which is $7.50 for a night lift ticket, $7.50 for tubing all Friday night, and $7.50 for rentals.

We just finished off our Torchlight Parade and Fireworks this week on Christmas Eve. We had lots of fun with approximately 80 people participating in our torchlight parade and 140 kids received gifts from Santa Claus, who made a special appearance here at Apex on the 24th.

The weather forecast looks great for the rest of the Christmas holidays with more snow on its way.

Bring a camera and enjoy!

14/15 Season Update!

It has been a busy summer for the crew up at Apex, they are working hard to get the mountain ready for another great Season.

Triple Chair: The Triple Chair will be running as usual for the start of the 14/15 season.

Terrain Park: An extension to the Terrain Park on Claim Jumper was built this summer.  That means that the entrance to Claim Jumper will now be accessed from Rookies Trail.  This extension in vertical on Claim Jumper will result in more features and a longer run.

*New* Beginner Park:  The run located to skiers left of Claim Jumper is now the new Beginner Park for the 14/15 season.  This new park will have slide on / slide off rail features, jumps and tables to learn basic tricks and other fun features to entertain the beginner to intermediate park rider.

New winch Groomer: A new winch groomer was purchased over the summer that has a longer cable than the previous winch cat.  This means the grooming crew can winch more runs in less time and have more efficient grooming on our steeper runs.

Summer Trail Maintenance: Crews have been out brush cutting the runs to make the early season conditions better earlier.
