Come ski, hike and just enjoy the beautiful Grouse Mountain :)
A place where you can hike up a mountain. When you reach the top there's a gift shop and restaurant.
It was the first time I had my head in the clouds - literally! If you're tough enough try hiking up the mountain. Many make it, many don't. For the rest of us, the lift is just fine. At the top there are black bears, zip lining, ski lifts and other interesting things to do. Overall, Grouse Mountain is great for someone who loves the outdoors and a little adventure.
Grouse Mountain for skiing or snowboarding is kick-ass! You can't beat a mountain which is 30 minutes bus ride from downtown with stunning views across Vancouver. However, pro tip: Don't attempt the Grouse Grind aka "Mother Nature's Stair master" with your *much* healthier Vancouver born-and-bred friends unless you want to experience the closest thing to hell on earth. It is BLOODY DIFFICULT. *wheezes*
Outdoors exercise for me is usually a hike when I'm in Vancouver, the Grousse Grind kicks butt! 1500 feet straight up and my best time is 55 minutes.
Great place to spend the day skiing or just go for the night and have a special event like a birthday or anniversary.
Hiked the Grouse Grind. An amazing and very intense trail! Over 100,000 people high it yearly.
