Summer Starts Right Now!
Summer activities begin at the Peak of Vancouver
May 21, 2011
Grab your sunglasses, big appetites and snowshoes as Grouse Mountain is ready to kick off our summer season on Saturday May 21. It has been a record breaking winter but we will transition into full summer operation this Victoria Day long weekend with all our fabulous activities including the Eye of the Wind, lumberjack shows and Birds in Motion demonstrations. Some snow remains at the summit allowing you to enjoy a bit of winter and summer at the same time. It is guaranteed to be a unique experience!
With great weather in the forecast for the long weekend it looks like sunscreen will finally be needed in alpine Vancouver. While everyone eagerly awaits the opening of the Grouse Grind we still have the equally heart-pounding Snowshoe Grind open every day for fitness junkies and casual hikers alike. Afterwards you can relax with a beverage in the sunshine on our stunning patio with its unrivaled view.
As you may have already heard, Grouse Mountain will re-start skiing and boarding on May 28 after temporarily shutting down for essential maintenance allowing snow lovers to enjoy the slopes until Canada Day. The Screaming Eagle Chairlift, Paper Trail, The Cut and Quicksilver Terrain Park will be in operation on weekends between the hours of 9:30am to 5:30pm.
Come on up this Saturday and help us celebrate summer’s long awaited arrival!
