I spent six days in Apex in Mid February, and I totally loved the place.
It is small, its is quaint, its a locals hill 100%, and that is great. The snow quality was super nice, the runs vary from easy cruisers to some of steepest stuff I have ever seen in the world. If you can ride this hill, you can ride anywhere in the world.
The parks are great, they have both a beginners park and and advanced park, both with their fair share of rails, boxes and hits.
The groomers are wide and smooth, and dont really get to chopped up as the day goes on.
There are little to no lift lines, even on the weekends. The people there are amazing!!!!
I'll be heading back for sure.
