It was rhe first time i came here and that too for snowboarding no less. Thankfully we were graced with a clear and sunny day. I would recommend arriving early morning to make the most of your day also because parking gets full very quickly.

For snowboarding the forms, getting the gear and storing away ur belongings, everything is very systematic and easy process. The slopes were easy to ride for a beginner like me and they have maps and employees everywhere to help you if you need them... I lost control of my snowboard for a bit and they were very quick to help me before anyone got hurt. All in all a fun filled day and the view makes it even better.

Just an adive: if u a newbie take those lessons they help you in avoid bruising like i did (but that was my own doing and having friends who wanted a good laugh)

My wife, daughter and I decided to head to Grouse Mountain after a morning at Capilano Park. We had a beautiful day and a local said the Skyride to get to the top of Grouse Mountain was a short taxi ride up the hill <$10 each way. So we went for it and got some spectacular views of downtown Vancouver. The pics I included don’t come close to doing justice to what we actually saw.

There are three places at the top of the mountain to eat/drink. There is also a winter clothing/ski store and a souvenir shop.

Tip: If it’s a cloudy day, skip this activity as you’ll have no views.

We went up to the top with everyone in Vancouver. "If you can see the ground move in!" Once we got to the top the views were amazing looking back at the city. The crowds were not. No places to sit and eat. Every nook and cranny was taken. The line to catch the tram down was an hour long. The great thing was the light walk with snowshoes. What a wonderful sight. Lights everywhere and no crowds. Well worth the effort.

Got the seabus and the 236 bus so easily accessible. The views were stunning at top of the mountain. The skyride is highly recommended. If you wish to spend a morning this is a great way to do so.

This was a truly great experience.
We visited off peak (September 2017) so I expect that there were fewer visitors than during high season, which was good although there probably weren't as many activities.
We went to the top of the mountain which gives incredible views over Vancouver.
The ski lift for the second part of the journey is great fun.
The bears were gorgeous although I did feel sorry for them in their enclosure, but I think I recall being told they were orphans so maybe they cannot be released into the wild.
A great day, would certainly do it again.

Hi Dave,

Thank you for leaving such a kind review. We certainly love the view from on top of the Mountain as well, especially after the Peak chairlift! September is when our summer season is winding down, so we are usually a little less busy then peak summer season. You are also correct about Grinder and Coola, our two orphan grizzly bears. The were orphaned as cubs, and unfortunately are unable to be released back into the wild. But they do enjoy their life in the 5 acre habitat!

We are so glad you enjoyed your day here at Grouse Mountain, and we look forward to welcoming you back again!
