About This Activity/Attraction

Grouse Mountain Resort

Wherever you are in downtown Vancouver, it’s hard to miss Grouse Mountain towering over your shoulder.

This iconic mountain is the city’s wilderness playground and is only 15 minutes from the core. Rising 1250 metres (4100 feet) above sea level, Grouse Mountain provides city-goers an opportunity to ski and hike and take in Mother Nature without leaving the city limits.

All year long there is something to do here. Visitors can take the SkyRide Gondola to the top and catch a movie in the Theatre in the Sky, visit the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, and finish the day gazing at the westcoast sunset with dinner and a drink. Grouse Mountain is also home of the famous Grouse Grind, a gruelling 2.9 km (1.8 miles) upward race climbing a total of 2830 stairs. During the Snow season, tickets include access to outdoor ice-skating, sleigh rides, snowshoe trails, the month-long Peak of Christmas celebration. During the Green season, visit the Gizzly Bears in the Wildlife Refuge, experience Canadian Culture with the Lumberjack Shows or perhaps take in a Guided Eco Walk with a local naturalist.

You also cannot miss the views of the city of Vancouver far below!
