what a great smaller mountain...went up there just last weekend with local ski club and had a blast...apex surely doesn't boast the quantity of runs of neighbouring big white (let alone whistler) but it offers kick-ass challenge in terms of quality of runs...they have a number of very challenging blues and blacks, so if you want to really ramp up your skill level and be challenged then go for it...truly a great ''smaller'' mountain....and some good nightly entertainment and dining at both the tempest lounge and gunbarrel pub, and fresh tracks (the latter for breakfast and lunch)....not as much going on for families, imo, ie, movies or entertainment for kids after resort hrs.
