We planned two days at the end of an Alaskan cruise to see some of Vancover! While we enjoyed Stanley park, the absolute highlight was Grouse Mountain!! Thanks to locals who suggested this trip!! We traveled by bus with the help of friendly bus drivers who always advised us of the stop and transfer we needed to arrive at our destination! The sky ride itself was beautiful, but the REAL treat was the Eye of the Wind tour that took us up the chair lift , then up the elevator within the powerful wind turbine to the observatory that surrounds the base of this powerful generator. The tour director provided lots of information, and we could see 5 mountain ranges , and marvel at the spectacular views! Of course it was an extra treat to see the grizzly habitat beneath us as we traveled back down the mountain side. A REAL ONCE in a LIFETIME treat!! It was money well spent! I suggest at least three hours to see some of the other events which we missed due to the late hour, and bring a jacket since it is quite cool on the lift.
