Following several days of increased precipitation and cooling temperatures, more than three centimetres of the flaky white stuff have accumulated at Grouse Mountain. With sunny, cool temperatures in the forecast for the coming days, the North Shore’s largest snowmaking fleet is poised and ready to make additional snow.
In addition, Grouse Mountain’s 8,000-square foot ice skating pond – the only mountaintop outdoor skate pond in the lower mainland – is slated to open in the near future.
“As we look ahead to our 88th winter season at the Peak of Vancouver we are thrilled to announce that the snow has officially arrived,” said Grouse Mountain general manager Michael Cameron. “We know our passholders are eagerly anticipating the arrival of winter and we cannot wait to begin what we know is going to be an incredible season at Grouse Mountain.”
With early openings to the winter season a regular occurrence in recent years, Grouse Mountain has consistently had some of the longest seasons on record with skiing and riding continuing well into spring. Armed with the North Shore's largest snowmaking fleet, Grouse Mountain’s 2014/15 winter season is poised to be an exciting one with new night terrain on Blazes (including new lighting), a brand-new race centre and one of western Canada’s most-renowned terrain parks among the highlights.
