Grouse Mountain

Vacation Travel Guide
Grouse Mountain showing landscape views, mountains and night scenes

This popular year-round attraction is a hub of culture, nature and activities just 15 minutes from downtown.

Grouse Mountain has been a destination for hikers and adventurers since 1894.The site has undergone extensive upgrades and expansions in the decades since the world’s first double chairlift was installed in 1949. It now offers visitors a range of ways to enjoy the stunning natural beauty.

Winter sports enthusiasts can choose from traditional snow activities, including skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. There are dozens of ski runs, ranging from easy to black-diamond level for experts only. If you’re a beginner, book a ski or snowboard lesson before heading out.

If you prefer to relax while enjoying the sights, take a sleigh ride through the winter terrain. Snow "limos" are available, complete with experienced chauffeurs to take you on a sled ride of the slopes. In summer, book a zip line experience and soar above the canyons and forests.

Learn a little bit about the history and culture of the area at the entertaining Lumberjack Show. This 45-minute performance features axe throwing, a springboard chop, tree climb and log rolling. Performances are held three times a day from the May long weekend until the October long weekend and are weather dependent, so check the current conditions on the Grouse Mountain website before traveling.

Nature lovers should check out the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife and the Birds in Motion show. Look out for the informative ranger talks and learn about the local animals.

When you need to recharge, there are a number of restaurants and cafés located on-site, offering everything from quick snacks to five-star dining.

The proximity of the attraction to the center of Vancouver makes it a great option for a day trip.

Getting to Grouse Mountain is easy with buses running regularly from downtown Vancouver. It’s also a quick drive from downtown. Prices and activities vary for the busy winter and slower summer seasons.
