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.

7 am Thursday, July 17th

The fire that is burning to the northwest of Apex Mountain Resort, is roughly 8 to 10 km’s from the resort, in a straight line.  It appears that the fire has slowed down as it has reached some cut blocks.  There was an excavator and 2 bulldozers on scene cutting a fire block.  The forestry service is sending a Class A ground crew to fight the fire today.

The fire at the Apex Guest Ranch, which is located at the corner of Green Mtn Rd and Apex Mtn Rd is still burning to the north and east of that location.

A second fire is now active to the north and west of Apex Mountain Resort.  The fire is located roughly 15 to 20 km’s to the northwest, near Nickel Plate Mine.  The fire is roughly 20 hectares in size (not confirmed).  Due to the remoteness of the fire it is thought that this fire was started by lightning during the last storm and has been smoldering until today.

The Green Mtn Rd / Apex Mtn Rd fire is slowly spreading to the east and north.  Fire crews are active with ground crew and air support.

All roads are still open at this time.
