Apex Mountain Resort is known for low humidity and lots of precipitation which is the perfect combination for that champagne powder ski vacation dreams are made of. As the only resort in the Okanagan with North Easterly facing slopes, that champagne powder can remain unaffected for days. So once you've finished shredding every stash you could uncover in the resort... hello, slackcountry and backcountry skiing!
Introducing our Backcountry Basics camp!
As ski touring has been growing in popularity we wanted to offer the opportunity to not only hone your off-piste ski skills in the resort but create a learning, judgement-free opportunity to ask all the basic backcountry skiing questions you have. The idea is to work out all the quirks and kinks of getting a new touring setup, what to pack, how to layer etc. so that when you are ready to head out of bounds you can do it with confidence!
YOUR CAMP INCLUDES:
Day 1: Ski Evaluation Break into groups
Day 2: Morning chat
