Accommodations At Apex Ski Resort

Finding A Comfortable Place To Stay On The Slopes

For a smaller mountain resort, you can stay at Apex ski resort, choosing from a range of accommodations from new rustic townhomes to condos and vacation rentals in the heart of the village, cabins, a hostel, and a full service hotel, the Apex Mountain Inn.

Comfortable and cozy, most Apex resort vacation rentals come with a hot tub and some with a fireplace, as well as fully equipped kitchens.

So, you'll have everything you need for relaxing after an amazing day on the slopes. When looking for accommodations at Apex ski resort you'll want to think about what part of the mountain you'd like to stay on.

There are vacation rentals in the lower village, within walking distance to the store, tube park, restaurant, skating loop and hockey arena. The hostel is also in the lower village, as is the hotel. Alternatively, you can find Apex rentals on the slopes that are still ski in/ski out, but you might need to drive if you want to go down to the village.

Planning Your Stay At Apex

A couple of things to consider when planning your stay at Apex...

If you'll be staying at self contained accommodations you'll want to be sure to bring enough food. Do your grocery shopping in Penticton before you head up to the resort. There's only a small convenience store at the hill and you'll be paying premium prices for any groceries. Plus, if you have to drive down to the city to go grocery shopping, it's a 30-45 minute drive one way, depending on the weather. So, save yourself some money and time by coming well prepared.

Apex Mountain Inn

Apex Mountain Inn is right up at the ski resort, steps away from the main resort village, and gets good reviews at TripAdvisor. The Coast Inn at Apex mountain ski resort offers a full service hotel, as well as a family and group lodge. Here you have everything you need to stay in comfort, or take advantage of full service, as you enjoy all the amenities of Apex ski resort. Ski storage is available on-site, so you a place to safely store your gear.

Unlike most other vacation rentals at Apex which usually have their own hot tub, the Inn has an outdoor patio with 2 hot tubs for hotel guests. So, it you want accommodations with your own private hot tub, you won't get that here. You do have access to spa facilities at the Mountain Inn, as well as yoga facility, though, so this is something you might want to consider. You also don't have a private fireplace.

If you're looking for a deal, you can get early and late season specials, and you can also find specials over the Christmas holidays. Be sure to ask about these when booking your stay, or call the hotel directly to ask.

One other deal to ask about is staying during the week. Rates are sometimes cheaper if you stay at Apex Ski Resort from Sunday to Thursday nights. There's usually a required minimum (such as a minimum 2 night stay, and double occupancy), but if your dates are flexible, it could be an inexpensive mini ski vacation.

If you want economy, the hostel which goes under the name Samesun Hostel now, is known to be super clean, with friendly helpful staff, smaller but perfectly suitable private rooms, and it's located right in the village.

Vacation Rentals At Apex Ski Resort

Vacation Home Rentals at Apex ski resort are plentiful. You can choose from condos, townhomes, vacation homes, and executive vacation home rentals. The only thing is that they book up fast, sometimes up to a year in advance.
Kowal Ski Cabin for example, sleeps up to 15 people and is a beatiful log home overlooking the ski slopes.

You can opt for a rental close enough to Apex resort village that you can walk, or you can choose a town home or condo higher up on the slopes where you are away from everything and have more peace and quiet, and still can ski in/ski out.

Copper Creek Lodge is just walking distance from the village, and is right next to the skating loop, for example.

These popular rentals include fully equipped kitchens, covered decks, fireplace, hot tub and in-suite laundry. The lodge books up fast for winter holidays, so you'll want to plan well in advance.

The Silver Bullet Inn is another popular choice for vacation rentals at Apex Ski Resort. Located up on slopes along Strayhorse Trail, on Apex Mountain Road, you can ski in and ski out of your rental. If you want to go to the village, though, you'll likely want to drive down. You're also closer to the Nickelplate Nordic Centre from here. Units at the Silver Bullet Inn come with all the amenities you could want... private hot tub, equipped kitchen, heated floors, wireless internet, satellite tv, and more.

Other nice condo rentals include...

  • Creekview Court
  • Mountain View Lodge
  • Keremeos Creek Crossing
