    Fun afternoon
    Fun afternoon riding the Skyride gondola to the top of the mountain - wonderful views of the city below. Lumberjack show was fun. Got up close to two grizzly bears - man, they are huge! Had lunch in nice BBQ restaurant while birds of prey show was going on. Highly recommend for all ages, including kids.

    worth the trip.
    even though it was cloudy we enjoyed the day. the ride up was peaceful the ride down was not. School kids. It is ok it is a kids activity. The lumberjack show was entertaining and had partial views from the top but we were just too early. Would repeat as there is enough to do in a afternoon

    A great days activity when on a summer vacation in Vancouver.
    Having visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, out guided tour then took us up to the Grove Mountain Ski Area. We rode the Mountain Skyride for access to the top and found it all a great experience. At the top, we were able to purchase lunch (even if the prices seemed over the top) but wandered around to enjoy the views overlooking Vancouver as well as visit the 2 grizzly bears kept up there and went to the free lumber jack show which was entertaining with a real comedy theme running through it. Added to the morning trip to Capilano Park it made for a very good outing.

Beautiful sunny clear day to see Vancouver from Grouse Mountain.
We did our research but didn't see any transparency about how many of the activities were no longer available; grizzlies hibernating, zip line closed, lots of construction fencing, no wayfinding, etc. There's a cute ice rink (tiny) for very young kids and a short xmas lighted trail. Late season, this an $80.00(C) ride to see the City from 4,000ft.

Try websites like TripAdvisor or Groupon to get better deals. Do wear you walking shoes, as there is a lot to do once you are there. The Grizzlies, the lumberjack show ,the bird show and such. yep, carry and apply sun cream. Carry your own water bottle.

This is one of my favourite mountain gondolas, even better that they filmed an episode of the X Files here!

You get great views of the city going up and down. Would highly recommend.

Grouse Mountain is always worth a visit when you're in Vancouver for the amazing views of the city and harbour.

Unfortunately the bears were still asleep on this visit.

$150 plus taxes for a 6 minute return trip on a gondola is absolutely ridiculous. Once at the top there’s not much to do anyway plus you’ll be paying more for mediocre overpriced food if you fancy something to eat. What a rip off.

A really disappointing trip, wouldn't recommend travel up in the winter unless you are skiing.
We were highly recommended this as a must do trip when visiting Vancouver and we were really disappointed.
The ride in the gondola was really packed as people were crammed in with skies and equipment. Sadly not a relaxing ride.
At the top most things were closed because it was winter. Even the observation deck was closed. We visited the cinema to learn more about the mountain and the film being shown was about Iceland!! As the space wasn't manned by staff, kids were using it as a space to sit and chat away from watching adults. So we couldn't even watch the film being shown.
For the money, there was so little to do up there accept ski. The animal area was closed until June.
Sadly, an experience I wouldn't do again and couldn't recommend. When I look at what else we afforded on our trip, for the same price or less, it completely wasn't worth the money.
Ultimately a lot of money for an 8 minute overcrowded gondola ride.

Just pay and ride. A bit of a tour guide on the 10 min journey and this is fun. Can get busy if there is school parties going up for lessons and it does get busy first thing and late at night.
