Shinny hockey

Here in our west coast climate, we tend to look eastward with a twinge of envy when Canadians on the prairies and beyond talk about their weekends spent playing a little outdoor shinny.

Without a doubt, few things are as quintessentially Canadian as pretending you’re a hockey superstar on a chilly winter's day alongside some of your best mates. In Vancouver, however, your options are limited. In fact, Grouse Mountain’s mountaintop ice pond is the only of its kind in the lower mainland where you can practice your spins in a beautiful alpine environment.

Well, now you can get your open-air hockey fix at the Peak of Vancouver! Yup, that’s right. We’re making our magical 8,000-square foot ice rink available for rentals to your team or group of buddies on a first come, first served basis.

Book one hour of private ice time on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights and choose from 8:00 pm or 9:15 pm timeslots. Your reservation will include access to Grouse Mountain’s plateau activities along with a platter of hearty nachos in Altitudes Bistro following your game (because you earned them…right?!).

For more information and to book your reservation, call Grouse Mountain guest services at 604.980.9311 or email
