Apex vs. Big White vs. Silver Star this weekend

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I will be going up to the Okanagan this weekend (Friday and Saturday). Which of these three resorts will likely be best? I understand that Silver Star has the best steep terrain, but it is currently frozen and very difficult to ski. Big White, I understand, has the best groomers; would that be better given the current conditions? How is Apex skiing these days?

Under current conditions I'd recommend Big White for sure, they have the most reliable groomers and groom a significant portion of the mountain from one side to the other... The snow in the alpine near the summit might not be too bad either.  Silver Star's best terrain would be a downhill skating rink atm and Apex is amazing with powder or softer snow... but they don't groom much of their terrain.  Anything not groomed or off piste will be ice at all three places.

Big White it is! Thanks for the advice!
