Join us on Friday October 20th, 2017 for our annual Fall Teacher Open House.

Come together and learn how easy it is to bring students from the classroom to the mountain! Open to teachers, education assistants, school administration, principals, and teacher candidates, come up and experience Grouse Mountain’s unique field trip opportunities. We’ve teamed up this year with HCTF WildBC for an exciting new agenda! We will share tips for bringing students outside, engage you in fun outdoor activities; guide you through “speed stations” to introduce you to our ski school, snowshoe, and adventure programs at Grouse Mountain; and then lead you on an Eco-walk across soon-to-be ski runs and snowshoe trails to our First Nations Hiwus Feasthouse, Grizzly Bear Habitat and Eye of the Wind to give you a first-hand look at both our summer and winter programs. At the end of your journey, we will guide you back to the Chalet where you can enjoy lunch at your leisure with your colleagues and take in the stunning views of the city and harbour.
