Summer FUN AT GROUSE MOUNTAIN
Explore. Play. Discover.
Experience the best that British Columbia has to offer, all in one incomparable destination. Grouse Mountain’s unique location, perched above the city of Vancouver on the edge of the wilderness, allows us to offer a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences showcasing the best our Province has to offer. From getting to know our wildlife by meeting our two resident orphaned Grizzly bears or getting up close with majestic raptors to experiencing a taste of one of BC’s most exciting pastimes on our new mountain bike trails. Round out your visit by sitting down to a locally sourced, West Coast inspired meal featuring ingredients grown just steps from your table in our mountaintop gardens while enjoying the stunning views. Immerse yourself in everything BC at Grouse Mountain.
Step on board the Skyride and ascend 2,800 ft towards the top of the Mountain for an unforgettable journey.
Our scenic Peak Chairlift will transport you to the apex of Grouse Mountain in approximately fourteen minutes. At the summit, be amazed by a spectacular panorama that reveals the beauty and scale of Vancouver, and the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean as it graces the coastline for as far as the eye can see.
Minimum height requirement for the chairlift ride is 1 metre.
