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
I love the outdoors. So this review is biased :). Trails galore for the adventurous. A downed airplane, wildlife, free range bears (for the tourists) and hawks and bees and and and. Lots of touristy stuff to do which can be fun for all ages. There are zip lines and paragliding (although I haven’t done those). Food wise there is standard coffee and snacks to pizza and burgers to steak and beer. If you like hiking tho. This place is very close to downtown and has every level of difficulty.
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The log show was corney but in such an enchanting way. Though I don't care to ever see wild animals caged, I can appreciate the efforts made at this facility. I was accompanying three individuals who are accomplished at birthdays, and have mobility issues. Therefore my only disappointment was the lack of a place to purchase something warm to drink near the grandstands.
Fantastic place to visit! Arrived early in the morning, heavy cloud and a bit of rain. Beautiful place even in that kind of weather, though it did clear up by lunch time. The zip lining was a spectacular experience. The views, the adrenaline rush, everything. The groups are small so it all feels personal, and the guides (Malcolm and Anthony I think, I'm terrible with names) made the experience really fun, chatting with everyone and making things fun, while still being super clear and informative. Overall amazing day out. The zip lines are a must to experience the area. Grinder and Coola didn't make much of an appearance, but they still showed their faces
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.
I am giving 2 stars because I went to the top of the mountain in 2004 and 2007. It used to be much nicer in the Summer. With flowers and more activities for the kids. I went in a beautiful warm and sunny day in Aug 2018 and it seems nobody takes care of the space anymore. The customer service in the restaurant and in the beaver snack is terrible. The worse I have seem in my life. Beautiful place. But they do not invest in renovation or keeping it nice and clean.
