High speed quad at Apex Mountain Resort
Bid adieu to mid-winter blues and pack your winter gear because time’s a wasting to get in on the first annual BREWSKI Craft Beer, Cider and Spirits Festival at Apex Mountain Resort on February 22. I know I’ll be there! http://www.apexresort.com/activities-events/apexbrewski/
It is a new event added to the roster after last year’s highly successful Vertical and Vintages, which will be back on March 8. Just think you can scope out the best runs and outdoor activities available during your visit to Apex for BREWSKI and then own the hill on a return trip for Vertical and Vintages in March. http://www.apexresort.com/activities-events/verticalandvintages/
The $35 plus GST ticket includes 12 tokens, appetizers supplied by the Gunbarrel Saloon and an after party with live music from Towers and Trees. At Brewski you’ll find an exciting array of breweries, cideries and distilleries including: Barley Mill, Cannery, Firehall, McClelland Premium Imports, Mt. Begbie, Tin Whistle, Tree, Rustic Roots, Left Field Ciders, Summerland Heritage Cider and Maple Leaf Spirits. You’ll be glad to know that with all those great choices, more tokens are available for purchase at the event. Brewski runs from 6 to 9 pm when the After Party begins. Towers and Trees, an energetic group that emerged from Victoria’s fertile music scene promises to play the night away so be sure to pack your dancing shoes.
You’ll want to check out some of the great accommodation, ski and event packages put together by Apex for your maximum enjoyment. However, if that doesn’t work for your schedule, there is a shuttle by The Coconut Express for $20 per person to bring you up the hill for the event and back down safely.

If you haven’t been to Apex before, you’ll find this friendly quaint resort just a 30-minute drive from Penticton. With a mix of terrain to accommodate any skill level, you can ski or board your legs off in the glades, in steep chutes or open cruising slopes. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself floating along in champagne powder snow. Oh, and if you don’t board or ski, there’s plenty of other activities such as a tube park, NHL-sized hockey rink, snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails and a one-kilometre adventure skating loop. Rentals are available.
If all this outdoor activity isn’t your cup of tea, you can browse The Trading Post, which is the liquor and general store. In addition to groceries, snacks, magazines, games, souvenirs and beverages, it has over 1000 DVDs for rent. Over at The Mountain Shop, you’ll find a wide selection of quality ski and snowboard equipment and apparel. There’s a number of dining options in addition to The Gunbarrel Saloon where the Brewski festivities will take place. Check out The Rock Oven Bar and Grill, The Edge Bistro, and The Longshot Cafeteria. And depending on your accommodation choice, there are amenities such as hot tubs.
See you there!
