April 27, 2012. North Vancouver, B.C. - Mother Nature did not disappoint this winter at the Peak of Vancouver delivering over 11 meters of snow to Grouse Mountain during the course of the season. With an impressive base still on the slopes, The Peak of Vancouver has decided to extend the fun into the month of May for those who just can’t get enough of winter.
With the season extension, Grouse Mountain is excited to announce a brand new two-lane tube park alongside a terrain park at the top of The Cut to allow skiers and riders to perfect their skills before summer arrives. On weekends, the Screaming Eagle chairlift will be in operation allowing for skiers and riders to take in the great spring conditions...Grouse Mountain continues its tradition of guaranteeing the longest winter season on the North Shore.
“The sun is shining and perfect spring conditions await here at Grouse Mountain with plenty of snow left to allow our guests to make the most out of what has already been a phenomenal winter”, says Grouse Mountain General Manager Michael Cameron. “Our operations team is also moving full steam ahead into summer so for a limited time we will be providing the best of both worlds.”
Signalling that summer isn’t too far around the corner, resident Grouse Mountain Grizzy bears Grinder and Coola emerged from hibernation this afternoon after a long 158 day snooze. Both bears looked to be in terrific shape and had fun playing and shaking off the cobwebs after the long winter slumber. Guests are invited to come and visit Grouse Mountain’s Refuge For Endangered Wildlife before summer operations officially begin on May 18 at the Peak of Vancouver.
