(North Vancouver) A magical story awaits when Grouse Mountain Resort’s annual Peak of Christmas celebration returns Friday November 25th to January 2nd, 2023.

The perfect holiday backdrop, guests of all ages will be transported to a winter wonderland, complete with snow, Santa and his real reindeer, brilliant light installations and Christmas movies in the Theatre in the Sky.

“Our Peak of Christmas activities allows guests to really immerse themselves in the festive season,” said Madelaine Twomey, Communications Manager at Grouse Mountain Resort. “Here at Vancouver’s North Pole, guests are encouraged to be the author of their own holiday narrative with everything that’s on offer at Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas celebration.”

The elves are hard at work preparing the mountaintop for the highly anticipated arrival of Santa Claus at Vancouver’s North Pole and getting the mountain ready for all it’s visitors to enjoy this magical holiday experience.

At Santa’s Workshop, believers young and old can share their special Christmas wishes and take their holiday photo. Visits are by donation with all proceeds raised going to BC Children’s Hospital. Guests this year will be able to digitally reserve their spot as soon as they get to the mountain allowing them more time to enjoy Peak of Christmas festivities instead of waiting in line.

Elf Headquarters inside the Chalet will keep the little ones busy with a host of activities including Letters to Santa, and ornament decoration.

For outdoor fun, guests can explore the enchanting Light Walk around Blue Grouse Lake or take a spin on the 8,000 square foot Mountaintop Skating Pond surrounded by majestic views.

An annual favourite, the Breakfast with Santa program is a time-honoured tradition where guests enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet, visit with Santa Claus himself, and share in the joy of the season with his elves. Held in Altitudes Bistro, select dates are available from December 3rd – 23rd, 2022 with tickets on sale soon.

For a more intimate option, The Observatory will reopen its doors to diners on December 2nd. Housed in a mountaintop chalet with windows overlooking the city lights of Vancouver, The Observatory will be serving a unique fondue menu perfect for the winter season.
