(North Vancouver) It’s the news skiers and riders have been eagerly waiting for; Grouse Mountain will officially open for the 2018/19 season on Wednesday, December 5th at 3:30 pm.
Thanks to the recent cold temperatures that allowed our snowmaking team to get the snow guns fired up, Paradise Bowl and the Paradise Jib Park will be opening with access via the Greenway Chair. Skiing and riding will be available from 3:30pm to 10pm on Wednesday and then from 9am to 10pm starting Thursday. Skiing and riding will be available at Mountain Admission ticket rates until more terrain is opened.
“We’re excited to welcome skiers and riders back out on the slopes for the start of the winter season,” said Grouse Mountain’s Director, Mountain Operations Grant Wahl. “Our snowmaking team has done a great job taking advantage of the recent cold temperatures. We’re working to open up more terrain as soon as possible.”
This winter season marks a significant milestone for Grouse Parks; celebrating the 25th anniversary of terrain parks on Grouse Mountain. Kicking off the celebrations will be the Grouse Parks season opening event this Friday, December 7th at 6:30pm in Paradise Jib Park.
