New learners area for Apex 50th year

Apex Mountain Resort, a Thompson Okanagan gem above the small city of Penticton, BC, is in the midst of its 50th anniversary celebrations. These will culminate with the Apex 50th Gala on Jan. 13. On-slope, a newly expanded beginner’s area introduces first-timers to the basic concepts of skiing and snowboarding. Meanwhile, the more adventurous can hone their skills in three terrain parks or on challenging natural features like the Gunbarrel chutes. In all, there are four lifts accessing over 605 metres of vertical wonderland. (
