We were up at Apex today with Fred. We never seem to get the timing right at Apex -- people speak of the good skiing off the backside but we've always found it to be windswept and often accompanied with bad visibility. Still, it's close by, so we often seem to gravitate towards the place when we're looking for shorter day out.
We made a short run down into the first bowl. Diabolical. Back up again into the clag. We skirted back around to the edge of the bowl and had a good long look at a rather steep chute that would drop us back into the Apex resort. A really long look.
I think we're all a little gun shy with the unstable snowpack we've been hearing about and experiencing first hand lately, so we had good reason to be suspicious I think.
But we skied it and everything held together nicely! But by then we'd had enough and we headed to the pub in Summerland for pints. Good enough.
