My wife and I decided that the tram to the top of Grouse Mountain would be a fun afternoon trip. We were right. The ride to the top was fun. We rode up with "Santa Fred" and looked for the wolf. There wasn't much snow, but that's the way the weather bounces. We did get to see some, while we... More

This attraction is worth taking probably only once as it is very expensive to get to the top unless of course you walk. Once at the top it is also hard to get back down when there are lots of people waiting. We enjoyed walking around, taking in the views and seeing the Grizzly Bears. The other good thing is... More

I visited this place in November. It was snowing and this was my first experience with snow. It was fabulous.....Grouse gives us tremendous summit views. It is easily accessible via the Skyride. The skyride is considered to be North America's largest aerial tramway. The peak also houses the large wind turbine (eye of the wind). It has an elevator to... More

If you're disabled, or with a disabled person, you will be charged the full price to go up in the gondola but at the top you'll be lucky if you can access even a tenth of the 'attractions' (despite claims that it is wheelchair friendly). The theatre is down steps, so with me in a wheelchair, we asked how we... More

Although I didn't go here for the snow sports it was still a very disappointing experience. The skyride up to the top was probably the best thing of the whole visit. Views are amazing but once you get to the top it's like walking into a cafeteria. There was a very small area for ice skating but not much else.... More

Grouse Mountain has done a wonderful job of creating a must do while in Vancouver venue, outside of ski season. Of course you would go up to ski but what about all the rest of the year ? The views are spectacular and you begin to enjoy them right from the parking lot. ( on a clear day of course)... More

Gorgeous views of Vancouver from the mountain. We hosted an event here and they were great to work with and everyone had a fun time. Nothing like moving 900+ people up the mountain in those Sky trams. 100 people on a tram makes for a lot of rocking. Usually there aren't that many people in the tram normally. You can... More

This is a mandatory visit if you are in Vancouver. Pleasant environment, wildlife and nature very close to the town. The view from the cablecar and gazebo is very nice.

On a recent visit to Vancouver, I spent a day at Grouse mountain with my extended family and absolutely loved the experience. The young, fit members of our group undertook the infamous Grouse Grind ( a challenging hike to the top, gondola to come back down), while the older members took the gondola both ways. It was a wonderful day,... More

Even if you are only in Vancouver for a few days, Grouse Mountain is a must! Just remember during winter the free shuttle does not run. We found the cheapest way to get there from downtown Vancouver was on the ferry from near the waterfront station over to North Vancouver and then getting the bus. However this did take some... More
