Experience the magic of Christmas at Vancouver's North Pole. As the snow falls and the lights twinkle around you, explore all that Grouse Mountain has to offer this holiday season. Santa and his reindeer are waiting for you to come up and visit, and if you're lucky you might see the elves who have been hard at work transforming the mountaintop into a Christmas wonderland!
Purchase a Mountain Admission Ticket or book in for Breakfast with Santa for single-day access to the Peak of Christmas activities! For year-round access to our Skyride, mountaintop activities and the Peak of Christmas, consider buying an Annual Pass.
