The ski area of Apex Mountain Resort is actually on Beaconsfield Mountain. This is an appropriately named mountain. When you get to the top and look around, you will see lots of tempting sidecountry and backcountry, where an avalanche beacon is required.

Quickdraw is the high speed quad that takes you from the small village/cabin area to the top of Beaconsfield. This one chair services a ton of terrain. The other lifts service lower parts of runs that Quickdraw is used to access.

The T-Bar can be used to lap the terrain parks. This lift can get quite busy at night, as this is the only area that is lit up for night skiing. The Claim Jumper park is only open during the day, but the smaller park is open day and night.

Apex is the closest to Vancouver of the Okanogan resorts, and is pretty good value overall.

The undisputed snowfall champion of the world, Baker gets more snow on average than any other ski resort in the world. Located about 250 km east of the Pacific Ocean, Baker gets hit with storms all season long and is just far enough inland for the precipitation to fall in the form of bottomless powder. You aren't going to find the driest powder here as the ski area lies between 1070-1551 meters, ... [ Read More ]
Grouse mountain is front and center in the Vancouver mountain scene and has something for everyone. This is good if you are trying to attract as many visitors as you can to a mountain, but not so good if you are looking to avoid crowds and get some fresh tracks. The one thing that sets Grouse apart from the other two North Shore mountains is that you do not have to drive up a mountain road to rea... [ Read More ]
