About the Snow

Ideal weather conditions conspire to create incredible, light champagne powder. Apex receives the perfect mix of large amounts of precipitation, combined with low humidity and the dry champagne powder snow we’re famous for, is born! And because Apex Mountain Resort is the only mountain in the Okanagan that faces northeast, those beautiful powder snow crystals are less affected by the sun and the famous light, dry powder snow can survive for days after a snowfall.
With an average of 600 cm of this special snow falling each season, Apex provides the moderate winter conditions and dry power snow craved by skiers and snowboarders alike.

Snow Management

Guests often comment on the quality of the grooming at Apex. Skilled management of the white gold is essential for any ski resort to thrive. To this end, runs at Apex are maintained by a magical melding of man and machine, creating carefully groomed-corduroy. For the latest grooming status of your favourite runs, please check here: Grooming Conditions
Apex also has the most comprehensive snow-making fleet in the region. Apex currently operates 12 snow guns that provide top-to-bottom snow-making capability for over 2,000 ft of vertical. Because of this resource, the resort is able to operate its early season training camps each fall. Apex hosts training for elite athletes from several countries as they prepare for the World Cup circuit and other top racing disciplines.
