Create an itinerary including Grouse Mountain
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.

  • I went to Vancouver all the time as a kid, having grown up in Washington, but I had never been to Grouse Mountain. My daughter and I absolutely loved it. We were there in June and it was still cold....  more

  • Definitely a one time visit. The lift price was 64$ per person. Parking available in the location. It is 10$ to park for the whole day. Starbucks by the ticket counter and a restaurant and cafe on top of the mountain. The light walk was okay, could have been great if more lights were added.
  • Grouse is such a nice place to take your family if you ever visit North Vancouver. The family pass was $119 which is so expensive for a day pass trip up the mountain. Even worse, the family pass isn't available for the 50% discount that the other passes are eligible for. The one-time child ticket is $36 and the one-time adult pass is $69. Toddlers are free. The annual pass is $229 for an adult, $199 for a senior, $159 for a youth, $119 for a child; and $10 for a toddler. These passes are good value as it allows you to have unlimited access to Grouse throughout the year. All prices can be seen on the Grouse Mountain website. We went to the light trail which was a really nice trail in the mountain with lots of lights in the snow and on the trees. The path was quite icy and I often had to stray from the trail to make sure I didn't slip on the ice. The path was littered with the gravel to help give traction, but it provided little help in stopping us from slipping. The reindeer were a fun thing to see for the kids, who enjoyed it. They also loved playing in the snow just off the path a bit, where the snow was deeper. All in all, the experience was very fun and the buildings were very warm when we stopped to take a break. The view, although cloudy, was beautiful from above, especially with the sun setting. I do recommend purchasing the season pass if you are planning to visit Grouse Mountain more than once, instead of spending lots of money on the family pass.
