Grouse Mountain - Review
The North Shore Mountains in Vancouver are a range of beautiful green mountains that are worth visiting near the city. Grouse Mountain is perhaps the most popular and easy to visit amongst them. The Mountain is about 4000 feet in height. And if you are not up for scaling it, don’t worry; you can just take a ride in one of the chairlifts that make the whole thing a thrilling experience.
The Mountain looks and feels starkly different in summer and winter and is more than worth a visit in both the seasons. In both the seasons you can go up in the chair lift but in Summer you will additionally find the Grouse Mountain road trail if you are up for it. There are also special shows in summer which are worth visiting. But the real fun of going to Grouse Mountain is when it is seasoned with white snow in winter.
Standing at 4000 feet, the Grouse Mountain is one of the most popular peaks of the North Shore Mountains of Vancouver. You have the option of going up walking or on chairlifts, while enjoying a scenic view of the whole ranges. Tickets for Grouse Mountain chairlifts and other touring options are available online and at the spot. If you wish to avoid long queues it is best to buy tickets or Grouse Mountain beforehand from out ticketing platform.

Grouse Mountain, Vancouver Reviews
Great family fun! It is a bit expensive, but worth the experience. Make sure to catch the lumber jack show, it is hysterical. They also have an awesome bird show with hawks, eagles and owls. The show was entertaining and educational, plus the hawks fly super close to you. My daughter and I loved it! They have a bear habitat with two huge bears that are really impressive and you can also go up into the eye of the wind or do some zip-lining. The food is actually quite good but expensive, but the best food they have up there is the Beaver Tails! Really fun and easy to get to. Strongly recommend.
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. The lift experience is awesome. There are things to do from the gondola level and the lift level. An exhilarating view of Vancouver from the top. The backdrop of the mountain ridges gives you a wow feeling. Plan your itinerary as it gets very busy in the summer. The gondola ride is fast and can accommodate a lot of people. Each lift to the peak can only accommodate 4 people but has decent turn around. Enjoy nature and the views here.
Excellent place to do some hiking and see the sights. Incredible that this is available so close to a major urban area. I didn't get the ultimate view from the top because of clouds but it made the walk around the grounds at the top more interesting and I saw Vancouver from the gondola as we went down. I did the grouse grind hike. It was a good workout. Just take short/small steps and keep walking and you'll make it to the top. Water filling station is hidden by the condiments station of the cafe at the top. Bring some $$ and reward yourself for a job well done with a snack at the cafe. If you do the grind 5 times in one day, like the gentleman in the gondola, you can eat whatever the hell you want.
This review is for summer a summertime visit. Beautiful views and better than expected shows make this an excellent visit for our family with 4 kids, ages 6-14. I highly recommend going about 1 hour or more before the first show. Doing so enable us to get pretty close free street parking, and get up the mountain in time to take the chair lift to the top then see the lumberjack show followed by the bears then the bird show. All told we were there from about 10:30 to 1:30. Doing add-ons or a full size down lunch would affect your visit time.
