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
Really awesome place to shred some pow pow. I was teaching my friend to snowboard most of the time so I wasn't able to explore many of the runs. The ones I got to go on though we're breathtaking :)). Would recommend. Just don't buy anything once your on the mountain, they ramp up prices like crazy. Bring your own food and drink.
A must when visiting Vancouver. Easy to get to. Do actually climb it instead of taking the cable car - you can take that on the way down. The mountain path up has wooden railings and stairs. Be warned, it is steep, but you will find plenty of company on the way up. At the top, there are great views, restaurants , a Ski resort and bears! A great day out and an experience you will remember.
Wonderful location, high above Vancouver city. Good for fitness fans and nature lovers. Two orphaned Grizzly Bears and lumberjack shows! film shows if the weather turns nasty and good restaurants to get cosy in. try the Grouse Grind if your legs can take it! or ride the gondolier for some great views. Well worth the entry fee.
Pretty enough to look at (and the bears are adorable) but absolutely not worth the admission price in the off season due to lack of activities. There is little do to except watch spend even more money once up there. Staff and website were not very up front about this either. Accessibly for wheelchairs and strollers is also very poor compared to anywhere else we have visited to date. I imagine things would be better over summer but make sure you check availability thoroughly before going to avoid disappointment.
Beautiful!! I love it!! I’ve been there at least 10 times and every time I go there I love it even more. They have a lot of activities whole year around!! Check their website for more information. Hint: if you don’t want to pay for the gondola, just book a dinner at their restaurant (The Observetory) and you don’t need to pay for the gondola. However, each person must order a plate at the restaurant which is pretty much same price for the gondola!
