Kick off 2016 at the Peak of Vancouver during our family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration on Thursday, December 31st. 

From 5:00 pm onwards, enjoy entertainment and fun for all ages. Glide on our 8,000-square foot mountaintop pond, take a snow carpet down our new Sliding Zone and be awed by the magical outdoor Light Walk around Blue Grouse Lake. 

Plus, enjoy incredible performances throughout the night as well as a special 9:00 pm countdown for our littlest revelers that will be sure to light up the sky with a boom!
