Known as both a resort and an attraction, Grouse Mountain is a popular North Vancouver year-round mountain playground. There’s no better view of Vancouver’s North Shore and the city of Vancouver than the one you’ll see from the famous Grouse Mountain Skyride, an aerial tram that ferries visitors up the mountain 365 days a year.
There are activities throughout the year as the Peak of Vancouver transitions from summer playground to a magical winter wonderland.
See how Vancouver does winter in this snow sports paradise. The arrival of the snow leaves you spoilt for choice for things to do with skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and ice skating.
Summertime on Grouse Mountain is a great time for going for a hike, meeting Grinder and Coola at the wildlife refuge, ziplining, watching a Birds of Prey demonstration, or climbing the treetops at the Mountain Ropes Adventure.
The Grouse Grind trail takes you through steep and rugged terrain from the North Vancouver plateau to the glorious Grouse mountain peak. The trail is only 2.9 km long, but it is very challenging with 2,830 stairs and an elevation gain of 2,800 ft. You can understand why “The Grind” is a favourite spot for locals to improve their fitness level in a hurry. On average you can expect the climb to take up to an hour and a half to complete, depending on your fitness level, novice hikers should allow up to two hours.
In line with Grouse Mountain’s PureClean Commitment to health and safety, skiers and riders can expect a number of new protocols in place for the winter season. Advance Skyride reservations are required for all access to and from the Mountain. Advance online ticket purchase is recommended to reduce lineups and interaction. Capacity on the Skyride is also reduced.
Face coverings are required inside all Resort facilities as well as in areas where physical distancing cannot be maintained including while queuing, loading and riding on the Skyride and chairlifts. Individual chairs will be limited to families or household groups who are riding together.
