The Destination

Apex Mountain is the only mountain in the Okanagan region that faces northeast, making the beautiful new fallen snow less affected by the sun. The fresh powder snow can survive for several days after a snowfall, making the mountain extremely unique. The majority of the terrain is located below the tree line and although it is known for its steep terrain, it has a wide range of terrain, with many slopes for all levels, fun park features and of course the well-known Canadian black diamonds. If your future destination is to be Apex Mountain, your skills will surely reach new heights.
