Apex Mountain Resort is a ski resort located on Beaconsfield Mountain just west of Penticton, BC, Canada (in the Okanagan region).

Apex mountain has a summit elevation of 2187 m and receives an average of 600 cm of snow a year. There are 1112 acres (4.5 km²) of skiable terrain and 50 km of groomed cross-country terrain. There are 67 named trails accessed by a total of four ski lifts including one high-speed quad.

In general, Apex is a smaller, quieter resort, that tries to accommodate itself to the more advanced skier. It is billed as the 'hidden' resort equivalent to the more popular Okanagan resorts such as Big White and Sun Peaks, which offers a more personal experience and is less crowded, while providing the same quality in terms of snow and weather.

The mountain's main accommodation providers include Apex Accommodations, Apex Lodge, and Apex Mountain Inn.
