That's v cool. Much more interesting than circulating on a rink.We usually talk about skiing here of course, but here's a short video of the ice skating loop at Apex. It is located at the far end of the main parking area in the village and is free to use and open seven days a week and lit until 11 pm.
During the 80s, Apex built and operated a network of XC trails, most of them on the lower slopes of Green Mtn to the south of the village. The little village loop was just 1 km long and used a piece of land surrounded by townhouses and condos but left vacant because it was too swampy for buildings. In the mid 90s they abandoned XC operations due to the advent of Nickel Plate XC Club trail network 6 km away. The resort by this time had built its hockey rink in the village and acquired a Zamboni to groom it. Someone had a great idea: build edge boards and flood and groom the old Village Loop XC trail. It has only mild rise and fall and proved to be a huge hit with the public. Very popular for families to come up from Penticton for the evening to skate as there is no outdoor ice there, and the bushland trail setting is unique. Skates can be rented from the Mountain Shop in the village and there is a small building at the loop for lacing up and changing. Definitely worth a look if you're staying in the village.
