The Gingerbread Challenge is back for another holiday season!

Once again, Grouse Mountain and SOS Children’s Village BC are partnering during our annual Peak of Christmas to create a special SOS Children’s Gingerbread Village to showcase the finest edible 'art' in the lower mainland!

Do you have a creative eye and a talent in the kitchen? We are looking for professional and aspiring bakers and pastry chefs to build beautiful and unique gingerbread creations that will be displayed in the Grouse Mountain Chalet from November 28 through January 1 - the most wonderful time of year! As in past years, each participant will be paired with a local SOS Children's Village sponsor to collaborate on their gingerbread house design.

Looking for some inspiration? Check out a few of our favourite festive entries from last year's Gingerbread Challenge here.

Each gingerbread house will be judged based on creativity and overall design and the top three will be awarded the following prizes:

1st Place - $1000 Grouse Mountain gift card or cash
2nd Place - $500 Grouse Mountain gift card or cash
3rd Place - $250 Grouse Mountain gift card or cash

Bakers will also receive potential exposure through a number of channels, including:

  • Grouse Mountain Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social media channels
  • Media partners; Global BC and the North Shore News
  • Signage in the SOS Children's Gingerbread Village

Spaces are limited, so register today! For all the details, please refer to our official guidelines document located here.
