An Important Message To Our Neighbours At Apex Ski Resort And Its Surrounding Communities Affected By The Keremeos Creek Wildfire

After learning of the troubling news of the growing Keremeos Creek wildfire, we at Luxury Mountain Vacation Rentals wanted to send our sympathies and a message of support to those affected by the devastating wildfire. As fellow residents of the Okanagan and northern neighbours of Apex Ski Resorts and the communities around the resort, we know that it’s more important than ever to show our support and to stand in solidarity during these difficult times.

Hundreds of people and their families, homes and livelihoods have been affected by the Keremeos Creek fire, and have been forced to evacuate from their homes. With many under an evacuation order from B.C. Wildfire Services, including Apex Ski Resort, many people are being displaced and are at risk of losing their homes and livelihoods. 

However, we wanted to also provide a huge thank you to the wonderful firefighters who are diligently trying to save homes, land and infrastructure, as well as lives. Over 200 firefighters are currently battling the Keremeos Creek wildfire, and we must applaud their efforts and hard work. Thank you.

We also want to provide important resources to those who are affected by this fire. Below, you will find a list of links with relevant information about evacuation orders and where you can find the most up-to-date information in regards to the Keremeos Creek fire:

**This line and services are meant for evacuees affected by this fire – please don’t call this line unless you are an evacuee, as this important service must be kept open and available for those who need it.

We can’t imagine what those affected by this fire must be going through, but know that you are in our hearts and we hope that this fire will end soon and with as little destruction as possible. To our neighbours down south at Apex Ski Resort and the surrounding communities affected by this fire, you have our greatest sympathies and our support.
