Activities at Apex
In under six minutes the high-speed quad chairlift
takes you to the top of the mountain. From there you can access 550 acres of magnificent fall-line skiing and boarding on 56 runs spread over 2 mountain faces
(Apex and Beaconsfield Peaks). For cross country skiers there are 52km of trails
Dog Sledding Adventures and a Fountain Tire Tube Park
make for extra winter fun. You can relax in one of the outdoor hot tubs
or take a turn around the skating rink or the 'Skating Adventure Loop'

Biking at Apex
is appealing, not only to the cross country and downhill enthusiasts, but also the less adventurous riders. Old mining roads
make it easier to explore the backcountry or you can enjoy single-tracks which take you through meadows and pine forests. Mountain bikes can be taken up the chairlift.
In the summer time Apex offers access to beautiful alpine meadows. Ride the 'Quickdraw' Quad Chairlift up to hike or bike
and watch for deer, black bear, coyotes, red-tailed hawks and other wildlife; then ride the lift back down to the village for refreshments, snacks or a full meal.
