(North Vancouver) It’s the day that skiers and riders have been waiting for with great anticipation: Grouse Mountain is excited to officially launch their 88th winter season this Saturday, November 15th at 9:00 am.

Following last weekend’s first snowfall of the season and several days of steady snowmaking, Paradise Bowl and the Paradise Jib Park will be open via the Greenway Chair from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm for skiing and riding at discounted pricing.

With the Environment Canada forecast calling for continued cool temperatures and clear skies in the coming days along with the North Shore’s largest snowmaking fleet in place at Grouse Mountain, additional terrain is slated to open in the near future.

“With the incredible efforts of our snowmaking team and the cool temperatures over the past week, we’re thrilled to give our skiers and riders a head start to the winter season,” said Grouse Mountain general manager Michael Cameron. "Looking ahead, the weather forecast is great news for our snowmaking efforts and we cannot wait to welcome downhill enthusiasts to Grouse Mountain during our most exciting time of year.”

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.

Until November 30th, winter enthusiasts have an opportunity to save 20 percent off Grouse Mountain’s outstanding selection of Zone, Free Ride or Ski Wee Camps for children, or Ladies Only, Adult Clinics and Private Lessons for adults.
