4.5

A relatively small local's hill in British Columbia, Apex is known for its solid advanced terrain and quality snow (though less of it compared to other resorts). Expert backcountry terrain is accessible within a short hike and while the high elevation can suffer from wind, the lower terrain is well protected. The resort is mostly serviced by a single high-speed quad with very few crowds. Don't miss the Gunbarrel Coffee in the on-mountain restaurant - a flaming grand marnier poured down a double barrel shotgun into liqueur and coffee.

A mostly hidden gem - feels like giving away a local secret writing this. It was an epic snow year, we had so much fresh powder and it stayed cold. It was dry and light. Any week day you could ski right onto the lift with no wait and the weekends were only marginally busier. The terrain is a great mix of epic steeps, chutes, glades, spaces tree... More
