Steep. Snowy.
Just as Rewarding.

4.3 km of snow-covered challenge await. Only here.

The Snowshoe Grind

Grouse Mountain has translated the intensity and accomplishment of the Grouse Grind into a new winter experience – the Snowshoe Grind. Located mountaintop, the Snowshoe Grind promises to challenge. Starting at the relocated Grouse Grind timer, outside the Chalet adjacent the Skyride ramp and just southwest of the skate pond, the Snowshoe Grind is the perfect way to start Grouse Grind hiking season fit and strong, while embracing a snowy winter landscape.
