Apex has shifted their opening date to Wednesday, rather than their anticipated opening date of Dec. 9.
A Pineapple Express rain storm that hit B.C. recently left behind both good and bad news for local ski resorts. Apex had pushed back its original opening date from Dec. 2 to Dec. 9. However, with snow making machines going steady, they are now able to open earlier.
