Since its first season of winter operation in 1926, Grouse Mountain has offered a ski/ride experience like no other, with 33 downhill runs
accessed via four chairlifts offering the greatest selection of terrain on the North Shore. In fact, The Cut was named one of CNN’s Top 100 Ski Runs in the World
, which isn’t difficult to fathom when soaring down its expansive slope with the city skyline before you.
With 14 runs open through 10:00 pm,
Grouse Mountain also offers the most extensive selection of evening skiing terrain for night owls looking to log a few runs after a long workday. Winter also lasts longer at the Peak of Vancouver, as the North Shore’s largest snowmaking fleet allows the mountain to typically open in mid-November and remain in excellent condition for downhill skiing and riding well into the spring.
Grouse Mountain’s snow school is among the most highly-respected in British Columbia, introducing children as young as three to the thrill of downhill skiing and riding in group or private lessons
. For those a little older looking to hit the slopes for the first time or build upon existing skills, there are a vast selection of sessions
from which to select your best fit.
Innovation is the calling card of the mountain’s operations team, whose two terrain parks and Cut Jump Line are among the most renowned in British Columbia. The Grouse Park
team has garnered much respect in the industry for their thoughtful planning and meticulous upkeep of the terrain under their care which plays host to bi-weekly Park Jams and other events throughout the season.
For those looking to for a Grouse Grind-like experience during the snow season, the aptly-name Snowshoe Grind
offers just that, culminating with a Snowshoe Grind Challenge in early spring. From Snowshoe Fondue evening experiences to classes for every age, interest and fitness level, strapping on those snowshoes was never so much fun.
