Grouse Mountain, North Vancouver

4.3
#1 of 6 in Nature in North Vancouver
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. To visit Grouse Mountain and other attractions in North Vancouver, use our North Vancouver online holiday planner .

  • We decided to spend the afternoon at Grouse Mountain after exploring Capilano Suspension Bridge just 5 minutes away. The views were incredible and the kids love the gondola ride up the mountain. We en...  more »
  • I visited Grouse Mountain for the first time on a snowboard. When Blizzard was on the rampage, Vancouver City was seen in the mountains, but it was a fantastic experience! If you are going to Vancouver, I would definitely recommend this place to visit.

  • Great experience! However, the semi private lesson is over priced! We did not arrive on-time because we underestimate the traffic and admission time so we missed our scheduled lesson by 40 minutes. Si...  more »

  • This mountain is spectacular. As a prairie girl, I can say that this was definitely one of the first mountains I experienced in more ways then just driving past. You can easily get to the base of the mountain via public transit and there is paid parking if you have driven as weĺl. The Gondola ride is a bit spooky although I am afraid of heights. Once on the top you forget that you're so high up. I find that most people aren't so amazed by the natural beauty here. As someone who didn't grow up around mountains I would definitely recommend this place to any visitor's. I have been there twice, it is very easy to spend a whole day here. You can go snowboarding, skiing or just take a general ride up and walk around, rent snow shoes, go sledding, ride this huge sleigh or go "skating". The ice rink is small but I can see its appeal if you're not used to it. There is a canteen with good food, a fancier restaurant that serves comfort food and several gift shops. All in all I would definitely recommend and I always take my visitors there!
  • Great little mountain just outside Vancouver BC. Get your season pass early and save big. Great place to bring the whole family. They have sledding and ice-skating rink. During the holidays they have gingerbread house building and other fun activities. The night skiing is one of my favorites. Make sure to pick up a parking pass as well. You can get them for one or two year period. That way you don’t have to worry about paying for parking each time you visit. Rentals are up on the top of the hill and can suite the whole family if you don’t bring your own gear. Guest services can answer all your questions. But be warned that the line can be very long on the weekends or holidays. My suggestion is to go during the week
  • Perfect day. Weather was fantastic. Want to give kudos to guest services for returning my wallet when I left it on the counter after getting change for the bus. The young man searched me down on the bus and returned it. Just really nice. Thank you!
  • Very beautiful at the top. Seeing the bear up close in a modified habitat is a great part of the attraction. There are shows which we don't all see but I have the sense that they are well incorporated with the place. I would have spent a good amount of time here
  • It's a fantastic place. The hike is great, very challenging since its long and steep. I had no idea the first time I did the hike when I saw the mark 1/2 I almost wanted to cry.;) I think if you make it under or around one hour you are in good shape. If you take your time it's almost possible for everyone, you will see kids and grandparents hiking together too. The view up there is worth the effort. The view, restaurant everything is awesome up there. Don't forget that prices are high even for a water bottle, so take what you need with you if you don't like to spend.
