(North Vancouver) Celebrate the festive season at Grouse Mountain’s annual Peak of Christmas, beginning this Friday and running through January 6th, 2019. The elves have been hard at work transforming the mountaintop, ready for the highly-anticipated arrival of Santa Claus at Vancouver’s North Pole.
“Brighten your spirits and feel the enchantment when you ascend the Super Skyride and are greeted by the magical twinkling lights at Vancouver’s North Pole,” said Grouse Mountain’s Communications Manager, Julia Grant. “Our Peak of Christmas activities allow guests of all ages to celebrate Christmas cheer through visits with Santa and his reindeer, wandering through our enchanting Light Walk or watching Christmas movies in the Theatre in the Sky.”
At Santa’s Workshop, believers young and old can share their special Christmas wishes and take a photo. Visits are by donation with all proceeds raised going to BC Children’s Hospital.
When evening falls, visitors will marvel as stunning light installations bring radiance to the winter night on Grouse Mountain’s popular Light Walk.
For more outdoor fun, take a spin on Grouse Mountain’s 8,000-square foot Mountaintop Skating Pond surrounded by trees adorned with glimmering lights.
The elves have also been busy decorating in the Peak Chalet, which will feature masterful creations in the Gingerbread Village presented by VPG Realty. Guests are encouraged to vote for their favourite Gingerbread Village creation to select a grand prize winner, with funds raised also benefiting BC Children’s Hospital.
An annual favourite, the Breakfast with Santa
program runs from Saturday, December 15th through Monday, December 24th with very limited availability still remaining. Back for another season, The Observatory’s popular Christmas Lunch
also returns on weekdays from December 3rd to 21st.
