Here's the thing you might not get from the others' reviews. The Grouse Grind is the alternative to taking the gondola to the top of this mountain. It is an arduous straight-up hike on rugged trails which the fully fit pride themselves on completing. The sad news is that they ride back down with you on the gondola ; ) Once up the views are world renowned. Trouble is our 'winter' consists of grey, overcast, non-view days roughly from November to April. So if it works out weather-wise please do but I'd add it is pricey so make sure the weather is clear.
