(3,600+ reviews on the web)
Mountain Nature / Park
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.

  • An amazing surprise - I was expecting a lame and small chairlift to a lookout of some sort. What we got was an amazing gondola ride to a real ski resort with fresh snow and even Grizzly Bears thrown in. This place was one of the highlights from a 5 week holiday adventure and should be a "must do" for everyone. I suppose the locals are used to having snow such a short drive from the city but for travellers from Queensland, Australia this was such a delightful surprise
  • We only had one day in Vancouver and we spent it at Stanley Park and Grouse Mountain and we would recommend the same to anyone visiting for a short period of time. They had a great bird show, great views of the city and nearby landscape and a bear habitat. I would recommend buying the package that gets you all the way to the top of the Eye of the Wind
  • Worth every $ to go up. We got a helpful tip from a tour guide that if we made a reservation at the restaurant we would get free mountain passes. We went up and paid the extra $7 for the peak and $15 for the eye of the wind. Could have gone without the eye of the wind experience in hindsight as the view from the peak is nearly as good and unobstructed. In the end you can get up here, have a meal and go to the peak for just a fraction more than if you brought the tickets outright. Definitely worth doing it that way. If you decided to go to the bistro while your all ready up there your almost wasting money as you would have paid for the ticket to get up initially anyway.
  • Wow what a place! Absolutely breathtaking views and only half hour from Vancouver downtown. About $C40 to go up to the restaurant/ski base. Saw lots of kids /families going up for a spot of skiing. There are even a couple of rescued grizzlies in the area which can be seen (were still hibernating or in their cave when we were there). Def worth a visit.
  • Great views overlooking Vancouver and the Northern Cascade mountains. There are interesting activities that take place on the mountain outside of winter and the resort/restaurant are interesting places to hang out. They have one of the torches from the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics at the lodge.
