Owner description: Scenic tram ride to the top of Grouse Mountain.
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Getting into this area is fun as parking can be an issue. The base station itself is fairly average with a coffee shop and loos. Thankfully, we spoke to a traveller who had just come off the mountain advising us to select ticket option three on the price menu. I thought nothing more of this. Then, once in the queue, we were approached by a member of the team there asking if we needed advice on the various ticket types. Seriously, there are many! None of them are cheap either. We felt loathed to pay $83.90 + parking $5.00 to go up, but, we had made the effort to get here and did so anyhow. The ride up is fun and very swift. It's hard to appreciate the gradient you are being taken up until you are at the top. Once there, you could easily spend the day up there (in the sumer anyhow). That said, once you have walked up the various paths and spent time appreciating the flora and fauna and perhaps even had a bite in the restaurant, time will have flown by. There is a hidden viewing deck in the gift shop at the bottom which most people don't go out onto. We feel it's worth seeing. All in all, an expensive yet worthwhile way to appreciate the mountains here.

If your lucky enough to have sun, this is one of the best ways to view Vancouver. Its in North
Vancouver across the bay and if you don't have a transportation, you may have to take a ferry to get over there from down town VC. If your over 60, get an all-day senior pass, as its good for all VC transportation - buses, rail and the ferry. You can get this pass at the central bus terminal, or ask any bus driver how to get there. The transportation folks in VC are very helpful. A special treat, this venue is also on the way to the Capilona Suspension Bridge park which also awesome. Yes, when riding on the Skyride and want a good view try to get there early so your near the front of the line to be next to a window when you get on. Its worth the time and cost just for the view and photo opportunity is its good weather.

Nothing to dislike....great ride to the top, incredible views, year round access. Take a sack lunch or purchase lunch at the top!

I have taken the Skyride previously when it was snowy but this time there was no snow and it was a pleasant, clear day. The Skyride is always packed so you have to dash in if you want to get a seat or a decent view from the car.
The views back over Vancouver and the water are absolutely incredible as well as of the surrounding mountain area. On the way up we had a good view of the white wolves in the trees below. You can walk up Grouse Mountain by doing the Grouse Grind but this is the way to do it - ride up in comfort in the cable car with amazing views all around!

I'm sure it would be worth the hefty price of admission on a clear day, but on the foggy day we were there, it was just about a complete waste. We could not see any of the much bragged about views and the only thing worth seeing was the bears.

They have plenty to do on nice days from zip lines to tandem paragliding (at an extra fee) and lumberjack shows to many intricate tree carvings (free of charge).

Price is $40 - 55 (depending on whether you just want to take the Skyride, go up further in the chair lift or go even higher by taking the elevator up a wind turbine for a better view) + a $3 flat fee for parking.

You pass by the Capilona Suspension Bridge on the way here, which is a recommended stop.
