Apex Alpine Mountain Ski Resort - A Secluded and Romantic Getaway in BC

Skiing in the glue that holds my husband & me together. It’s one thing that we’ve enjoyed sharing throughout our marriage and right from the very start, on the slopes of Apex Alpine in British Columbia, we had lots of things in common.

Skiing in the glue that holds my husband & me together. It’s one thing that we’ve enjoyed sharing throughout our marriage and right from the very start, on the slopes of Apex Alpine in British Columbia, we had lots of things in common.

I was in my one piece ski suit, the one with the iridescent colors and snug fit that was fashionable at the time. I looked hot & felt even hotter on the steep slopes of this small-sized ski resort.

As I sat on the chairlift, to my horror below, came a brilliant skier carving turns in the soft, dry snow. He curves were crisp & clean and had excellent posture & balance. And he was wearing the exact same outfit as me!

I’m from the Okanagan and my parents taught me how to ski from a young age. Located just outside of Penticton, Apex Alpine Ski Resort was a powder haven for us on weekends.



On this particular day, when I unloaded at the top, I took the same run that my copy-cat skier had just taken, trying to find his tracks.

From the overhead ski-lift, I heard a deep male voice say, “You’re killing it!”

I knew it was him but wondered if he was referring to my athletic ability or to our mutual outfit. I ignored his hollering, finished my traversing and waited at the bottom in the lift line, letting others go ahead.

It wasn’t long before he was hurtling towards the bottom, where we ‘just happened’ to bump into one another for a slow right up to the top.

And for the last 16 years, through all of the ups and downs and rocky patches, we’ve enjoyed our ride together. And it all started at Apex Alpine Mountain Ski Resort.
