Frequently asked questions

Who owns Grouse Mountain? 
Grouse Mountain is proudly local, family-owned and operated by Northland Properties. 

When will the new Gondola be open? 
We anticipate the Gondola opening in Spring 2024 based on our current timeline. 

When will construction for the lift replacement project begin?
The first phase of construction is expected to begin on September 9, 2022. 

What will the impact to the rest of the Mountain’s facilities be during construction? 
The construction will be focused at the base of the Mountain, the tower locations and the new upper terminal for the Gondola. The Chalet and upper Red Tram terminal will not be impacted during construction with minimal disruption to guest experience. 

What is the environmental impact of this project? 
An environmental assessment was conducted by environmental consultants B.A. Blackwell & Associates which concluded that the lift replacement project will have a low environmental impact as the new Gondola alignment travels over previously disturbed areas on the Mountain. 

Will you be cutting down trees? 
There will be trees removed during construction for the installation and assembly of the towers within the 14-metre-wide Gondola easement area. The clearing of the easement area is expected to begin September 9, 2022.

Where will the new Gondola upper terminal be?
The alignment of the new Gondola stays within the existing Tram easement area and ends on the east side of the Chalet. The location of the upper terminal will provide easy access for guests wishing to download.

Where is the money coming from for this project? Is it being funded by public money?
There is no public money being directed to this project. The lift replacement project is a capital investment project being privately funded by Northland Properties.
