About John Redenbach

John and Krista both grew up in the valley and love spending their year round at the hill with family and friends.

they hope the family cabin adds warmth and fun to your stay.

Why John Redenbach chose Okanagan-Similkameen G

This cabin has character and feels like home, with ample room for the whole family. With views of the hill and within a short walk (30meters) to stray horse trail, it is perfectly situated. Experience the full deal at this property. It offers a wood burning stove, a fire pit out back and a slate pool table in the basement. Holy smoke has something for everyone year round!

What makes this cabin unique

The Big windows in the main living area are great to sit back in front of the wood stove and watch the snow fall or gaze out at the stars. It truly helps you unwind the second you walk in the door and feel like your away from it all, even though your so close to the ski hill, Nickel Plate Nordic Centre, Nickel Plate Lake/ Provincial Park and even Penticton (30 mins away).

Comfortable, cozy cabin at Apex Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from an amazing four night stay at the Holy Smoke cabin..The cabin was great for our family of 10.. The downstairs is awesome for the kids to hang out.. and the upstairs is great for the parents to catch up and enjoy a few drinks... the beds are great and showers are warm and comfortable after a long day on the slopes... Apex mountain was unbelievable for our group of skiers which ranged from brand new to experienced skiers.. We will definatly be back again! Thanks
