Not just for skiing and soaking up the views, Grouse Mountain serves as a major year-round playground for both tourists and locals. Known as the "Peak of Vancouver," this mountaintop recreational area offers plenty of chances to hike, zipline, paraglide, and attend or take part in lumberjack events. Access the summit via a scenic chairlift ride or by hiking up a network of rustic trails. Other year-round attractions include a mountaintop wildlife refuge and theater. For a different perspective, consider joining a helicopter sightseeing tour. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, North Vancouver holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Grouse Mountain and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Climbing up the side of this mountain was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. It was challenging and tough, but it was also beautiful and peaceful. The Grind trail was very steep, but making it to the top was one of the most satisfying feelings ever. Having a restaurant at the top of the mountain only made it better. We had really great food and spend some money in the souvenir shop. They even had a little pen where they kept grizzly bears that we could hang out with after dinner. The view at night was just spectacular. All in all this was an amazing trip, and I'll never forget my climb up The Grind ;)

Great place for families and hikers, do not miss it. We skipped the Grind trail, but did pretty much everything else they offer. Do not miss the chair to the top, where the views are awesome and you can visit the impressive windmill. The grizzly bears in their habitat and the Lumberjack competition are very entertaining, specially for kids. At the end of the day we enjoyed a nice dinner and a wonderful view in the bistro.
A classic expensive Vancouver tourist activity. Great views, some bears to visit in a small habitat, a great but intense hike to get to the top, decent food options. However, every few years that I go here I am absolutely blown away by the cost to ride the gondola up. I visited with my quite pregnant wife and we (wisely) decided the hike was too much. When you are not skiing or boarding and you just want to go see the view for an hour and have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, it seems crazy to pay the insane price to get up there. They attempt to hide this price in a list of expensive activities (helicopter tours etc.). You have to ask what it costs to *just* take the gondola. And then you realize why they don't want to display this price. Its too profane for me to list here but keep in mind before before you decide to come up with your family that it will cost you approximately the same amount as the downpayment on your first house.
Grouse Mountain is a must see destination for anyone travelling to Vancouver. There is the well known Grouse Grind trail that carries up the mountain all the way to the base of the top where the gondola exits. One great thing about the gondola here is that you don't have to drive all the way up the mountain like Seymore and Cypress. This is a huge convenience especially in winter when the mountain has a fair amount of snow. Once you get to the top of the mountain, you get gorgeous views of the lower mainland which is stunning. And skiing down the cut and top peak is what the view is all about. During summer, there is a carving show, wind turbine tours and many things you can do like seeing the grizzly bears. There is even an ice rink in winter if you are up for some skating. I wish the restaurant would carry a healthier selection of food and improve the food quality just a bit. Maybe offering more allergy friendly options would be nice as well. During peak hours, the eating area in the chalet is definitely not big enough and the restaurant lineups are huge. It would be great if Grouse Mountain would upgrade the size of the chalet but because of capital costs, it definitely won't happen anytime soon. And also, why don't you guys turn off your lights at night along the cut and top of the mountain where nobody uses it? This really doesn't seem economical or environmentally friendly. It would also be wise to get LED lights as your electric bill must cost you a fortune.
So enjoyable that getting stung by a wasp near the top seemed part of having an authentic experience. Very well run bird show and even when the turkey vulture flew off it was an opportunity to showcase its soaring ability. Great views from the wind turbine (or anywhere on the mountain). Do see the lumberjack show, it's not about showing three dozen different ways to chop wood. I can't speak to the dining experience up top, perhaps pack a couple of extra candy bars instead and take the bus from Canada Place.
