About the Property

Ski in/out and nearby snowshoe trails

PRICING IS IN U.S. DOLLARS. Unfortunately, as a Canadian company, we can't get them to change that. So apologize in advance for any confusion.

If you numbers are more than 12 - we maybe able to accommodate, depending on our numbers, to open up a secondary suite.


Our large & comfy three bedroom & loft vacation home offers you the perfect place from which to enjoy all the outdoors of Apex Ski Resort. They say if you can ski Apex Mtn. Resort, you can ski ANYWHERE in the world. Double black diamond runs, blue and green runs for beginners, this hill is for everyone. Enjoy the moonlight nights of snowshoeing into the back country, or just relax by one of four fireplaces that this complex offers.

Pristine fir trees, with views of the ski resort, located in the quieter section of Apex Ski Resort for you to frolic all day and relax to a quieter environment at night. Kick up your feet and lounge on our lovely comfortable leather furniture, or just look out the big picturesque windows and watch the snow fly while playing board games at the air hockey table. Very practical kitchen with a beautiful island and loads of drawers to store your groceries. Settle into one of two hot tubs located on site.

Apex Ski Village is smaller and more suited for a challenging ski destination, and the quaintness of a smaller Village like what you might find in Europe. We have two perfect places to dine with families and play hard at night, if you like. A 5 minute walk to the Village, located on a ski in/ski out run.

Distinctive Setting includes:

Private hot tub and gorgeous views

Parking for up to 4 cars

Sleeps 12 in 3 bedrooms and loft (3 queens, 6 singles)
19 foot ceilings, large dining area


Hot tub
High speed wireless Internet
Large flat screen TV with HD cable and DVD
Full size washer and dryer

Here is what the locals do in the Winter. . .

We wake up to breathtaking snowy mountain peak views. Access just how long it is going to take to eat and get out there for first tracks. We decide the courses. Just a five minute ski to the lifts and take the Strayhorse path home. After a day on the slopes, no one has to talk us into a hot tub to soothe our aching joints (we are getting older and there is always too much snow to shovel). Watching the snow fall with more expressos, and we often slip out for an evening skate on the outdoor skating rink. The braver ones taken in the hockey game at the outside rink. I personally love the Tube Park where you are GUARANTEED to take 10 years off your life, laughing alone, finished with a good book in front of the fireplace, or a hockey game on the television.

What do we do in the Summer ….

With wraparound decks, sip on your expresso or chai latte and soak up the morning sun. There is plenty of fresh air, and trails right out the back of the complex. If you are really quiet you get to take in the owls at night and the birds by day. What is particularly breathtaking is the cobalt blue skys when the sun hits the evergreens. Feels like and looks like heaven.

Explore further and go to the Nickel Plate lakes and take in a fishing day. Travel just a little further and check out the amazing tourist attraction of Hedley Mines and go on a tour. Want the city ?? Just a quick 25 minutes drive down the hill and float the channel in Penticton, take in the hot sun at one of many lakes, and come back home where the air is a little cooler and sleep like a baby !

Golfing – Twin Lakes Golf course is 25 minutes away or take in some high-altitude biking and give your cardio a great workout. Many climb Apex Ski Resort in the summer and have a ride of their lives down.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Warren & I moved to Apex Ski Resort 15 years ago to get away from the rat race of the city and raise our children in the great outdoors. We started this business 'on a whim' and 15 years later, we STILL LOVE WHAT WE DO. What we found were very down to earth people that loved the outdoors here at Apex Ski Resort. We fell in love with serving our clients from families to speciality teams like the Canadian National Olympic Aerial Teams, Canadian Speed Skating National Teams, and more recently, our first weddings, and family reunions !! We love chatting with the guests before arrival, many of them Warren or I have had the same location in common. We would love to check out Australia yet, maybe when the kids are out of the house, we can take in ski season in our 'off season' ! If you have a Hawaii property and are interested in swapping a week - let us know !!

Why the Owner Chose Summerland, BC, Canada:
I love the experience of putting up a Christmas tree and decorating the mantle pieces for clients children or grandchildren, and making them feel right at home over the special holiday season. Puts a smile on our faces !! We offer on-hand, nearby service for you. Many guests have stated 'this is truly a home away from home' and 'we can't believe how big these suites are'. We count it joy when clients become lifelong friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Our uniqueness stems from our on hand personal touches of clearing walkways, moving firewood when needed and sometimes helping clients when keys are lost ! We have four very private suites, large appointed bedrooms, wraparound decks, cathedral ceilings, pine & tiled floors, large comfy leather furnishings, and private hot tubs for the Trophy Buck Suite and Buck Suite. The Buck and Trophy Buck Suites sleep 12 EACH, and are 1900 square feet each. Every suite has their own independent fireplace to snuggle up nearby after a big day on the slopes or in the back country. Yes, snowmobilers are very welcome and you can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, and snowmobile right out our back door. Go visit the busy city of Penticton and come back to the quiet of the stillness of the air in the mountains !! A perfect combination !!
