Apex opens Wednesday

Apex Mountain Resort near Penticton is opening for the season on Wednesday, Dec. 6.

The ski hill will start with 10 runs off the Triple Chair — offering a 50 per cent discount on lift tickets — with more runs to open soon after.

“With over 70 cms of snow currently on the ground and 129 cms of total snowfall accumulation this season we are set to have a great opening day," said Apex GM James Shalman.

“There is a nice solid consolidated layer to our snowpack right now and we are set to have a fantastic season. There is a lot of excitement about the start of the season and good positive energy with the new ownership group.”

In addition to some new restaurants in the village, “a few” new cuts have been cut along with improvements to snowmaking capabilities.

The mountain has already been open for early season training for freestyle and alpine athletes from all over North America and Asia.

The Canadian Olympic Freestyle Team will be using Apex as their exclusive training venue prior to the 2018 Olympics.
