First year with new owner

Chantelle Deacon

Apex Mountain Resort is getting ready for its first season under new ownership, with an expected opening date of Dec. 2.

New this season, the public will be treated to a couple new restaurants and ski runs.

“You’re going to see a wine and tapas room here,” said general manager James Shalman. “We’ve made some nice changes to the cafeteria, with new carpeting and colours.”

“There is going to be a new artisan store up here, in addition to our mountain shop, which has ski clothing, skis and all that kind of stuff.” he said, adding a noodle house style restaurant and coffee bar will also open in the hotel this year.

“The new owners want to take a look at the resort and operations, basically just take a year to assess,” before making any major changes, Shalman said.

When the resort changed hands in May the new ownership group stated they would be making investments in the mountain village and, down the road, skier improvements.

The resort is excited to be a major training course for the Canadian mogul team in the run up to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea.

“We have the Olympic team coming here to train prior to the Olympics, for moguls” Shalman said. “They’re going to do do their whole Olympic camp up here.”

Shalman recommends watching the Olympic athletes in action during while they train on th mountain at the end of January.
